    Background: A TRUCK CARRYING 600 LB. OF EXPLOSIVES BELONGING TO SECRET ARMY ORGANIZATION TERRORISTS ACCIDENTLY BLEW UP IN THE PARIS SUBURD OF BOIS COLOMBES, MAR 6, AND EXPLODED AN ORGANIZATION HIDEOUT.

    POLICE, ATTRACTED TO THE SCENE BY THE BLAST, SEARCHED A BLOCK OF FLATS OUTSIDE WHICH THE TRUCK HAD BEEN STANDING AND DISCOVERED 4 CWT. OF ARMS AND EXPLOSIVES - INCLUDING PLASTIC BOMBS, GRENADES, MACHINE-GUNS AND AT LEAST ONE BAZOOKA.

    THE OCCUPANTS OF BOTH THE VAN AND THE VILLA ESCAPED.

    MEANWHILE ON THE FOLLOWING DAY, FRENCH NEGOTIATIONS WERE DUE TO BEGIN THEIR FINAL TALKS WITH ALGERIAN DELEGATES AT EVIAN TO BRING ABOUT A CEASE-FIRE IN ALGERIA.

    IN AN EFFORT TO WRECK THE TALKS, THE SECRET ARMY ORGANIZATION SET OFF MORE PLASTIC BOMBS THROUGHOUT ALGERIA AND FRANCE IN ONE OF THE MOST WIDESPREAD DISPLAYS OF DESTRUCTION SO FAR.
