    Background: Oran, Dec 12 - the day President de Gaulle cut his Algerian tour short by 24 hours, and another day of violence in Oran. Fierce skirmishes between Muslim and European supporters and French security forces continued throughout the day.

    Helmeted riot police continuously chased Muslim demonstrators through the streets. Tear-gas bombs were thrown at screaming mobs who retaliate retaliated by hurling stones and rocks back at the police.

    Many demonstrators were wounded - two were killed - after hand-to-hand battles with security forces. Overturned cars and wreckage littered the city streets.

    Next day, Dec 13, President de Gaulle's departure seemed to be a signal for violence to cease. Comparative calm returned to Oran, traffic flowed normally and shutters were removed from shop windows.
