Police Seek Assailant of Captain F. M. Scott

The police hope to arrest the assailant of F. M. Scott, police commandant who received a knife injury in the head yesterday during a scuffle between the police and an Arab crowd following the execution of the three Arabs in Acre. Three Arabs were arrested for inciting. Scott’s injuries are reported not to be serious. Aside from this minor incident, the day passed quietly.

The government has acceded to the request of the Arab Executive to surrender the bodies of the executed men for burial in Acre after the Executive had guaranteed that no demonstrations would accompany the burial.
