The remaining two leaders of the French motor-car bandits were

besieged and killed in a house at Nogent-sur-Marne on Tuesday night. The siege was more difficult than that of Bonnet's house at Choisy-le-Roi owing to the darkness. The police and troops used bullet-proof shields and blew up the house with dynamite and melinite charges. Seven policemen were wounded. After an eight hours' siege the house was entered. Gamier was found to be already dead. Vallet was dying, but was shot by a sergeant of Zouaves. Thus the gang of murderers and robbers has been broken up. Twenty-five men and twelve women await their trial.
