A court today sentenced Rassim Khalidi, secretary of the Arab Cooperative Societies and a cousin of the exiled Jerusalem mayor, to three months in prison for violation of the emergency regulations. Khalidi, who was arrested Jan. 20, was convicted of bringing money from Lebanon to Arab terrorist bands operating in Palestine.

Arabs held in the Government’s concentration camp at Acre started a hunger strike today in protest against their prolonged detention. The dead body of a 15-year-old Arab boy was found on King George Avenue early this morning.
