Download PDF for this date

Sentences as severe as any yet imposed on convicted Arab terrorists were meted out to two Jews today.

The Jews are private watchmen arrested a fortnight ago on the outskirts of Jerusalem.

A court sentenced one of them to seven years for carrying a bomb and the other to six years for possession of arms.

The sentences carry out emergency measures enacted last month to help stamp out the Arab disorders.
