Download PDF for this date

Cairo dispatches here report that the Egyptian Government has announced the arrest of a second group of seven Jews charged with “espionage and subversion on behalf of Israel.” The seven, according to the accusation by the Egyptians, ran an illegal printing plant in the Abdin district.

Last week, the Egyptians claimed they had arrested “leaders of the Israel espionage organization,” alleging that these “leaders” had worked throughout the Middle East.
