Egypt Deports Jewish Correspondent; Holds Him Six Days in Prison

The “Jewish Chronicle” reports that the Egyptian Government has expelled Jacques Maleh, its Cairo correspondent, after holding him six days in prison. The correspondent was informed that his presence was undesirable “because he was a British subject and because he was the correspondent of a foreign Jewish newspaper.”
