  • Description

    SNOWSTORMS TODAY (FRIDAY) DELAYED BY NEARLY 12 HOURS A SABENA AIRLINER BRINGING REFUGEES FROM THE CONGO. THE AIRCRAFT, CONVERTED INTO A FLYING HOSPITAL, FINALLY TOUCHED DOWN SAFELY WITH ITS CHARGE OF WOUNDED CIVILIANS AND SOLDIERS.

    QUEEN FABIOLA WAS BACK AGAIN AT BRUSSELS AIRPORT TO GREET THEM SHE HAD A SPECIAL SMILE FOR A GROUP OF CHILDREN RETURNING FROM THE CONGO.

    ALL APPEARED IN BETTER CONDITION THAN PLANELOADS OF WOUNDED AND REFUGEES LANDING AT LEOPOLDVILLE AIRPORT, THE PREVIOUS DAY. AMONG THEM WERE CONGOLESE SOLDIERS, THEIR EARS CUT OFF, THEIR NOSES SLIT. ONE OF THEM SAID THE INSURGENTS HAD ALSO PULLED OUT HIS TOE NAILS. "THE IDEA WAS NOT TO TALK," HE SAID. "ONCE YOU TALKED, THEY KILLED YOU."
    IN COPENHAGEN DURING THE NIGHT, BLACK INK IN PLASTIC BAGS WAS THROWN BESPATTERING THE BELGIAN EMBASSY. A NOTE WAS LEFT ON THE EMBASSY DOOR, SAYING THIS WAS A PROTEST AGAINST WHAT IT CALLED BELGIAN INTERVENTION IN THE CONGO.
