British Closing Net About Bandits Who Killed Gendarmes

Download PDF for this date

The English troops are fast on the heels of the bandits who several days ago killed five of the gendarmes accompanying Sir Herbet Samuel, according to reports received here from Lebanon.

The name of the tribe to which the bandits belonged is not known. Several of the bandits believed to have been involved in the murderous deed have been arrested. One was seriously wounded in his attempt to get away from the British soldiers.

The bandits involved in the slaying of the five gendarmes are believed to belong to a group which has been praying on the villages roundabout for some time, killing many people and bringing about general destruction of property.
