Bickering after the Killing

November 18, 1967 Bickering after the Killing THE killing that resulted in over one hundred deaths in Aden in the last fortnight is, happily, over, but not the bickering over who should come to power when the British leave. Britain's shock tactics of announcing a total withdrawal of her armed forces before the month is out, in the hope of getting some agreement between the NLF and FLOSY, have not so far succeeded. Last-ditch efforts are, nevertheless, being made to strike a compromise between the two conflicting parties and the Egyptian Government is reported to be keen that this is done and as quickly as possible. The National Liberation Front is presently in no mood to make any concessions; it has the full support of the South Arabian Army and is reportedly in control of 95 per cent of the area. In a statement to the Press, Saif Dhali, head of the NLF\s political bureau, said that his party considered itself fully responsible for security in "liberated areas of the occupied South Yemen". He was probably speaking with authority. NLF flags have been seen to fly from all checkpoints without challenge from FLOSY's adherents.
