    TROOPS HAVE THROWN A SAFETY CORDON AROUND ALGIERS AT A RADIUS OF ABOUT 30 MILES, TO PUT AN END TO BANDITRY, SHOOTING, AND KIDNAPPING BY LAWLESS GUERILLA MEN AND THE UNDERWORLD OF ALGIERS WHO HAVE BEEN ACTIVE IN THE AREA IN RECENT WEEKS.

    AT ROAD CORDONS, ALL VEHICLES ARE CAREFULLY SEARCHED FOR ARMS AND AMMUNITION, AND IDENTITY CARDS CHECKED. IF TENSION IN THE AREA IS NOT EASED, THE SECURITY ZONE WILL BE EXTENDED UNTIL THE TROUBLESOME ELEMENTS, MANY OF WHOM ARE FROM THE FORCES OF WILLAYA 4 MILITARY AREA, ARE ROUTED OUT.
