Lebanon Offers Reward for Terrorists Who Blasted American and British Legations

Prime Minister Abdul Hamid Keramy tonight posted a large reward for apprehension of the terrorists who last night blasted the American legation and British consulate here.

The blasts, which were attributed by police to persons dissatisfied with the Palestine plan recommended by the Anglo-American conferees in London, were caused by time bombs which exploded simultaneously.

The U.S. legation was almost totally ruined and tonight was declared unsafe and ordered evacuated. The British consulate was damaged less severely.

(It was reported tonight from Cairo that the foreign ministers of the Arab countries will meet in Alexandria on Aug. 12 to consider calling an extraordinary session of the Arab League to discuss the Palestine question. The Mufti may attend.)
