Four U.S.-made TO training planes sprayed bullets into large apartment buildings from which men with Secret Army Organiza- ion armbands fired bullets and ossed grenades on French ground roops below them. Officials reported at least 10 sol- :liers and 30 civilians wounded in .he street fighting. A French headquarters spokes- man said heavy fighting continues n Bab El Oiled, where Eu- ropean workers make their homes. The entire area is encircled by roops and entrances and exits lave been barred by barbed wire. Civilian authorities described the developing situation in Bab El Oued as extremely alarming. They said they feared the spread c[ generalized fighting into other European sections of Algiers n response lo the secret army's call to oppose Algerian independ- ence. Armored cars and halftracks were in position around Bab El Oued. Fighting flared up this morning with attacks by European gunmen on three French army patrols. By miBa'fternoon gunfire-had spread lo all streets ringing Bab El Oued. Europeans look lo windows and roofs to pour fire on troop patrols. Itfany of them wore French army uniforms black armbands bearing the French initials of the secret army. Their weapons included heavy mortars, machineguns, bazookas and recoillcss rifles stolen from French military depots. The appearance of planes was a clear indication of a stiffening at- titude by troops and riot forces against secret army followers who arc determined to keep Algeria French. Secret army units had attacked French troops earlier and at least eight soldiers were reported killed and a score wounded. As the day wore on, residents of Bab El Oued stood on balconies and threw grenades at the French troops. The French army brought up two armored cars and fired at the balconies.
