Seven Jews–including a 70-year old woman and two children–were arrested by Argentine maritime police on an island off here.

The Jews arrived on the island illegally from Uruguay. They came to Uruguay from Italy by way of Paraguay and are said to have relations in Argentina. They were unable to obtain regular Argentine entrance visas.
