IN NORTH AFRICA - CASABLANCA: Witnesses, credible, saw last night, in the sky of Kourigra, a locality at about 130 km from Casablanca, a circular craft, red, moving at a high altitude and high speed, and seemed to spit flames of a green blue.

IN SAFI: An elongated machine was seen last night at 8:30 p.m., in the sky by several people. The "cigar" was moving at a great speed, from east to north west. It was surrounded by a bluish light and left a trail of light behind him. Witnesses testified that this craft had nothing to do with jet aircraft.

The source is said to be the newspaper Le Bien Public.
