WARSAW (Jun. 13)
Twelve Jews were injured today, several of them seriously, when disorders broke out in the town of Przemysl following an altercation at a mineral water kiosk over payment for drinks. Further excesses were prevented by army officers who formed a barrier to protect the Jews.
According to reports reaching here, the attacks occurred at a kiosk owned by a Jew, Emanuel Mandel, near a shooting camp where several thousand were participating in a meeting of the Polish Shooting Clubs’ Union, when a customer remarked that some visitors had not paid for their drinks.
The booth was attacked by a crown of men who shouted that Jews were beating the Shooting Club members. Despite the efforts of an army officer, who threatened the rioters with a revolver, the kiosk was set afire and completely destroyed. Later Jews who passed by were beaten.
