ALGIERS (May. 13)
Six persons were killed and four wounded today in a fresh outbreak of fighting in the Jewish quarter of Constantine, a city some 200 miles east of here. This followed the wounding of 13 Jews yesterday during a series of running battles between Arab rebels and Europeans in that city.
The thirteen Jews were wounded when a hand grenade was thrown–presumably by an Arab–into a Jewish cafe on the edge of Shara, the Jewish quarter of Constantine. Shots were fired elsewhere in the Jewish quarter, also by Arab terrorists.
The European vigilante forces retaliated in a series of raids on cafes and shops in the Arab quarter. The Europeans used submachine guns chiefly and attacked Arabs in both the Arab and Jewish quarters. Arab casualties were put at about 15 dead and nearly 40 wounded. Although Arab bodies were found in alleys and building corridors in the Jewish quarter, reports received here said that the Jews had not participated in the fighting.
