Blast Rocks Jerusalem; 400 New Immigrants Arrive in City; Black-out Reimposed

A tremendous explosion rocked Jerusalem last night, blowing out the windows of United Nations headquarters located in the King David Hotel. The origin of the explosion was unknown but was believed to come from somewhere in the Arab-held Old City. No injuries were reported. Meanwhile, the black-out order was reimposed in Jerusalem over the week-end. A group of 400 new immigrants arrived in Jerusalem today.
