Two members of the Revisionist Organization were kidnapped over the week-end by armed men who invaded their homes. The abductions brought to seven the number of persons kidnapped in recent weeks.

The first kidnapping occurred Saturday afternoon, when Daniel Janowsky, an employee of the Jerusalem Jewish Community Council, and an active member of the Revisionist Organization, was taken from his home by three men, two of whom were disguised as British policemen.

The second victim was Mordechai Korngold, 17, a member of the Revisionist Orthodox Youth Organization. Young Korngold was forced from his home by a group of three men, all of whom were dressed as British policemen.
