  • Description

    In Paris, April 23rd, just 24 hours after the first news of the "Keep Algeria French" revolt in Algiers, three bombs exploded. One was at the new Orly Airport building. It went off in the early hours of the morning, killing a 61-year-old cleaner and causing considerable damage.

    The other two bombs exploded later - at the Gare de Lyon and the Gare d'Austerlitz. They had been left in automatic luggage lockers. Several people were injured at the Gare d'Austerlitz. The bombs were of the plastic type - similar to a number of others which have recently been exploded in Paris by extreme right-wing terrorists.
