France’s Macron calls 1961 massacre of Algerians an ‘unforgivable crime’

Emmanuel Macron on Saturday denounced as an “unforgivable crime” a bloody crackdown on Algerian protesters by police in Paris 60 years ago, the strongest recognition by a French president of a massacre in which many bodies were thrown into the River Seine. On Oct. 17, 1961, under the orders of then Paris police chief Maurice Papon, police attacked a demonstration by 25,000 pro-National Liberation Front (FLN) Algerians protesting against a curfew imposed on Algerians. The march was repressed “brutally, violently and in blood”, Macron’s office said in a statement, adding that some 12,000 Algerians were arrested, many were wounded and dozens killed.
