Abstract

Σημειώθηκε επεισόδιο στην Άχνα. Ένα λεωφορείο με δεξιούς και ένα αυτοκίνητο με αριστερούς σταμάτησαν και διαπληκτίστηκαν. Στην συνέχεια οι κάτοικοι του χωριού άρχισαν να ρίχνουν πέτρες στο αυτοκίνητο. Μετά από ομιλία Βρετανού αξιωματικού ο κόσμος ηρέμησε και έκλεισαν τα καφενεία και οι κινηματογράφοι για προληπτικούς λόγους.
An incident took place in Akhna. A bus with right-wing supporters and a car with left-wing supporters stopped and had a heated quarrel. Then, the residents of the village started throwing stones in the car. After the speech of the British officer the people calmed down and the cafes and the cinemas closed down as precautionary measure.
