Dr. Chaim Weizmann, president of the Jewish Agency, today issued a statement for himself and the members of the Agency in London expressing condemnation at yesterday’s bombing of the King David Hotel.

The statement released by the Agency office here said that Dr. Weizmann was associating himself fully with the “statement of condemnation issued yesterday by the Jewish Agency and the Jewish National Council of the dreadful crime committed yesterday, expressing horror and grief at the unspeakable outrage which has taken so heavy a toll of British, Jewish and Arab lives.”
