"The attack on Équateur was necessary to show the negroes that whites have arrived. Whites still have an excellent reputation in Africa. On our way we met a group of 30 or 40 young men of maybe 15, 17 years. As they spotted us on the street with our three jeeps, they swiftly scrambled for the underbrush to the left and right. They were armed with bows and arrows. We didn't pursue them. Why should we?"
