Riots in Algeria after De Gaulle ousts paratrooper General Massu; Scenes of protests from May 1958 Algiers putsch.

Riots break out in Algeria after Charles De Gaulle returns to power in France, and after De Gaulle dismissed from command the French paratrooper General Jacques Émile Massu for his opposition to DeGaulle's self determination plan for Muslim North Africa. French soldiers with rifles patrol at their posts and keep a vigil in Algiers during the crisis. Next scene is a flashback to May 1958: A crowd of supporters is seen around General Jacques Massu. A group of angry protestors is seen amassing, scaling a building and using a truck to break through fences onto the grounds of an official building. These scenes, the narrator indicates, are from May 5, 1958, during the May 1958 crisis, also called the Algiers putsch or the Coup of 13 May, when paratroopers under General Massu and civilians together succeeded in a coup and establishment of a "Committee of Public Safety". The narrator indicates that thus far in the 1960 crisis, the Army has remained loyal.
