In the surroundings of Paris the fighting is now continuous.

La Commune de Paris. Thursday, April 20, 1871. In the environs of Paris the fighting is now continuous. In the last few days the soldiers of Versailles had succeeded in taking Colombes, Bécon and Asnières, then the counter-offensive of the Commune under the command of Dombrowsky succeeded in regaining the positions lost, except however the castle of Bécon which is very important because it dominates this very area from above. Many Parisian prisoners were taken by the army of Versailles. In Neuilly the situation is very difficult: the innocent population is sheltered in the cellars, for days and days, because of the continuous cannonade of the two armies.
