Jews Imprisoned, Fined Following Anti-jewish Riots

Several Jews were condemned to fifteen days imprisonment, and a number of non-Jews were fined five hundred leis each, in the verdict rendered today after the trial of those arrested in the Targufrumos affair. Those fined were chiefly university students convicted of attacking the Jews. As several non-Jews were found injured after the riots, a number of Jews were arrested for assault. They declared they had only defended themeselves on being attacked by the anti-Semites.

All those condemned by the verdict are lodging an appeal to a higher court. The trial was held in perfect order in spite of high feeling over the affair. Strong measures had been adopted to prevent trouble.
