Communists in Jerusalem Prison Attack Warders

Twelve prisoners and thirteen warders in the Central Prison in Jerusalem were injured during a struggle which took place on Saturday, following a disturbance which Communist prisoners created in their cells, shouting, singing and beating tins, says an official police bulletin issued here, which goes on to report that the Communists were ordered to leave their cells and were removed by force when they refused to obey the order.
