Jewish Member of Turkish Parliament Killed in Plane Crash

Salomon Adatto, only Jewish member of the Turkish Parliament, was killed in a plane crash in Turkey this week-end, it was reported here today. Mr. Adatto, a member of the Democratic Party, was recently dropped by the party from lists of nominees in the forthcoming national elections in what appeared to be a move to drop all minority representatives from the party’s slate for Parliament.
