Number of Jews Blackmailed and Murdered in Macedonia

A considerable number of well-to-do Jewish citizens of Macedonia were murdered during the last two weeks, according to a report published in the Bulgarian paper “Bolgarski Myr.”

The victims were among those Jews who had received blackmail letters from the Committajes, threatening death unless money was given them. The murderers have not yet been discovered. The Bulgarian Government, the paper states, has announced that it will renew its severe measures against these terrorist bands.
