Seven Jews Imprisoned for Five Years in Iraq Arrive in Israel

Seven Jews imprisoned for five years in Iraq and released last week arrived at Lydda air port today via Cyprus. The seven, all young men between 23 and 25 years of age now, were sentenced to imprisonment for Zionist activities. (From London the World Jewish Congress reported that the seven Jews had been turned over by Iraq to Polish legation authorities upon their release from prison, since Iraq has no diplomatic relations with Israel.)
