Inscriptions verso BC (applied label): 11/61 25) TERRORISM IN PARIS: Every day Paris \ newspapers carry a little paragraph listing the locations of the homemade plastic bombs which have been set off \ the previous night, as French Rightists and Algerian \ extremists attempt to sway the seesaw of negotiations \ between the French and the FLN (National Liberation Front). \ Often nobody knows why a particular place, such as the \ little bakery on the Left Bank, is chosen. The next \ morning the rubble is piled to one side, and passerby \ shrug their shoulders. \ Credit: Nicholas Tikhomiroff © 1961 MAGNUM Photos
