The fighting started when snip¬ ers and other marauders belong¬ ing to the ETiN, the Moslem inde¬ pendence movement, drove through the Jewish quarter, fir¬ ing at random at homes and pass- ersby. In this Initial attack, at least three Jews were seriously wounded and a numiber of otheirs were injured. THE NEXT MORNING, de¬ fense units cornered another car of FLN maraudiers, driving down one of the main streets of the Jewish section. Boulevard Joffre. The defenders opened fire, killing four of the five men in the car, wounding the fifth.
