The Jewish Telegraphic Agency will be glad to answer inquiries for further information about any of the news items contained in this Bulletin.

Numerous innocent civilians, chiefly Russian and Jewish refugees, have been shot dead by Roumanian soldiers in Bessarabia, Deputy Lupo, Peasant Party leader, charged in Parliament yesterday. The Deputy made revelations of a very grave nature concerning what he alleged to be the “military terror” reigning in Bessarabia. He drew so vivid a picture of the suffering of aliens in that territory that some of the members were moved to tears.

It is understood King Ferdinard has telegraphed to General Popovici, at Kishineff, military commander of Bessarabia, to come to Bucharest immediately to explain. A statement by the Government is expected in Parliament at an early date.
