Download PDF for this date

A country-wide manhunt was on today for terrorists who raided the Jerusalem district police headquarters early Friday morning, and killed one Arab policeman and seriously injured another Arab and a Jewish policeman. The police say that the men planted eleven bombs, all of which exploded before they could be located. They travelled in stolen taxis which they returned after the raid. Police estimate that 20 to 25 men were involved.
