Gaillard's confidence vote wai 339-179. The *issue was not one of formal confidence, but if it had gone against Gaillard, hi: three - month - old governmen' would have' had to,quit. Assembly endorsement of the government's N o r t h African policies came against a backdrop of widely ranging protests and mounting tension over the bombing raid. Tunisia says 'the attack last Saturday on the frontier village of Sakiet Sid Youssef left 6S persons dead, 84 wounded and 10 missing. France says the raid was in reprisal foi Algerian rebel action against French forces from Tunisian soil. · » · * DULI^S'SAID it'would be "premature" to'decide whether to back any such complaint be cause Tunisia was vague abou what the United Nations migh' do. He appealed to bqth sides to ' "minimize the impact" of the bombing and seek to develop close, and.-friendly relations-o the kind he .believes necessarj between North Africa and Western Europe. · Dulles talked a b o u t th French-Tunisian crisis at . news conference where.he care fully sought to steer a middl course, in keeping with pas policy. Gaillard deplored the killing of civilians "in this most re grettable incident," but de dared most of the victims wer Algerian rebels. He told th Assembly the government ha . authorized the armed forces t use "at least its right.of legiti mate defense." He sought t . put the blame for the attack o the Tunisians, saying they ha harbored and aided the rebel from neighboring Algeria. * * * * GAILLAKD said "an activ center 'of war and infiltration had been established in th · frontier village by the Algeria National Liberation front. "It is evident," the 38-year old premier declared, "that th government does not recogniz culpability in this affair." Even as he spoke, hostilit increased against French force in Tunisia.
