(J. T. A. Mail Service)

The case of one of the guards of the Mosque of Omar who assaulted Rabbi Friedman near the Mosque of Omar last September is expected to come up soon. Rabbi Friedman was so severely beaten that as a result he has been afflicted with epilepsy, it was stated. The guard has been released on a ball of £60 pending the trial.
