A group of 364 Jewish refugees from Poland and Czecho-Slovakia were under detention today following their arrival at the port of Tel Aviv yesterday. They are being held pending a Government decision as to their disposition. The refugees arrived in five lifeboats towed by a sailing vessel. They were reported to have been transferred from a steamer off shore.
