Reports reaching here today from reliable sources reveal that new arrests of Zionist leaders took place in Hungary this week following the sentencing of six Zionist leaders in Budapest to various terms of imprisonment on charges of aiding Israel-bound Jews to leave the country illegally.

The reports estimated that at least 200 Zionists were arrested in the course of the week and were placed in a concentration camp near Pest. The arrests took place following the escape of a number of Jews who were subpoenaed as “agents of Zionist fascism,” one report added.
