France24: France to open classified Algerian War archives 15 years ahead of schedule. “France will open classified police files from the Algerian war 15 years ahead of schedule in order to ‘look the truth in the eyes’, the government announced on Friday. The files cover judicial proceedings by the French police and military forces during the 1954-1962 war of independence. They are likely to confirm widespread use of torture and extra-judicial killings by French forces.”
