French police yesterday arrested six Caen University students accused of assaulting and wounding former Gaullist minister Jacques Soustelle. The six were charged with assault and battery. Soustelle, still suffering from the effects of the attack, went to Caen today to identify the students described as “Mao-ists.” He was assaulted last month.
