Palestine Telegraphic Agency Despatches

Salim Abdul Rachman, son of the Mayor of Tul Kerem, and leader of the Moslem Christian Association in Palestine, has been exposed as none other than the leader of a band of robbers, according to police reports published here today.

The evidence against him shows that he was involved in a series of robberies and raids upon Arab and Jewish villages recently. The arrested Arab leader was decorated by the British Government on the occasion of King George’s last birthday.
