Download PDF for this date

An Algiers military tribunal today condemned Amar Slimane to death and Ahmound Allal, 19, to life imprisonment for throwing a grenade into a Jewish-owned cafe in Blida last October 5.

The attack was the third such outrage committed against the cafe-restaurant, Le Muguet, owned by M. Khalfoun. Slimane also had been accused of trying to murder an Algerian junior officer in an earlier incident.
