    THE ATTACK BY MEMBERS OF THE STUDENTS' ACTION FRONT (KAMI) ALSO COINCIDED WITH THE NATIONAL DAY OF THE CHINESE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC. THE STUDENTS BURST INTO THE EMBASSY IN THREE TRUCK-LOADS, BURNED A CAR, STAMPED ON PORTRAITS OF CHAIRMAN MAO TSE-TUNG AND HOISTED THE INDONESIAN FLAG ON THE EMBASSY'S PAGODA-LIKE ROOF.
