“Camp 61” at Caraolos was today made ready to receive the 800 visaless Jewish refugees being brought here by two British vessels following their capture on the S.S. Alma off the coast of Palestine. The deportation vessels are expected to arrive at Famagusta tomorrow morning. “Camp 61” already houses nearly 600 immigrants brought to Palestine by the S.S. Palmach last month.
