Arab Who Sought to Free Condemned Brother Bailed

Achmed Hedjazi, the brother of Fuad Hedjazi, the latter one of the three Arabs hanged last week at Acre for the murder of Jews during last Summer’s riots, who attempted at the last minute to gain his brother’s reprieve by confessing that he killed the Jews for which his brother was convicted, has been released on bail.

Seventeen of the Safed Arabs serving life terms have been transferred from the Jerusalem prison to Acre.
