🚨Cease-Fire Ends Algerian War

Mar. 18, 1962 - A cease-fire ending the Algerian war was signed in France today by French and Algerian delegations. The document terminating the seven-year rebellion will go into effect throughout Algeria at noon tomorrow (6 a.m. EST). The accord ended the long fight between the French Republic and the Algerian rebels’ National Liberation Front for control of the vast North African territory. It opened a new phase in the resistance of the Secret Army Organization (OAS), made up of extremist Europeans. Only after France and the nationalists have mastered the terrorist OAS will the settlement become really operative. President de Gaulle went on the state radio and television networks in France and Algeria to proclaim the settlement.
