Massacre of MELOUZA
28/5/57 : a gang of 80 terrorists surround the
mechta Kasba, about 10 kms from Melouza. All the men and youths of more
than 15 y/o are kept apart until night fall. Then the massacre start in
front of the wives, daughters and sisters forced to look at the horrible
sight. Some will become crazy. When the French army came in the morning
they counted more than 300 corpses and 150 wounded. The smell of death was
so strong that even battle hardened soldiers were sick.
Two days latter the same scenario at Ain Manaa and
Wagram, 2 small villages about 20 kms from Saida.
The survivors and press correspondents tell us:
"…algerians slaughtered other algerians….muslims
butchered other muslims…" from
"…with knives blows and axes, butchering them
in a bloody frenzy…’ from Time Magazine.
"This actions are from a such savagery that one
is at loss to believe that their algerians perpetrators have reach a degre
of evolution superior to those of animals attracted by the smell of blood….The
pleasure of inflicting pain is part of the rites…" from
"More than 300 corps, for the most horribly
mutilated with a sadism absolutely revolting…" from
Tribune de Geneve.
