Seize Riga Revisionists, Editors, Students, After British Consulate Attack

Download PDF for this date

Police today arrested five students and the editor and manager of the Ovntpost, a newspaper published here by the Revisionists, the right-wing Zionist faction, in a raid on the newspaper premises. The two newspapermen were released later but the students were held for investigation in connection with the smashing of windows of the British consulate here one night earlier in the week. The Revisionists, because they have been active in criticism of British mandatory rule over Palestine, are suspected of having given vent to their feelings by smashing the consulate windows.
