Zohra Drif is a retired lawyer and longtime senior member of the Algerian senate. She is best known for her activities on behalf of the National Liberation Front during the Algerian War of Independence.Drif was twenty years old and a student in the Faculty of Law at the University of Algiers when, on 30 September 1956, she set a bomb in the Milk Bar cafe, which killed three French youths and injured dozens. She was captured in early October 1957 along with Saadi Yacef, reportedly her boyfriend at the time, at No. 3 Rue Caton in the Casbah of Algiers by Lt. Colonel Jeanpierre and his 1st Foreign Parachute Regiment. In August 1958, she was sentenced to 20 years of hard labour by the military tribunal of Algiers for terrorism and was locked up in the women's section of the Barbarossa prison. She published a 20-page treatise, entitled The death of my brothers (French: la Mort de mes frères), in 1960, while still in prison. She was pardoned by Charles de Gaulle on the occasion of Algerian independence in 1962.
