The wounds received by the District Engineer Wigley, a Britisher, when a party of which he was a member was attacked by Arab bandits, have proven fatal.

The others of the group, the Egyptian driver of the tramway and his assistant were killed on the spot. The party was transporting 2000 pounds for the pay of railroad workers. The attack was made near Tul Kerem.

Taylor, another Britisher, who was wounded at the time is in a serious condition.
