Download PDF for this date

The Israel delegation participating in the International Students Congress, now meeting in Prague, walked out demonstratively last night in protest against an attack on Israel by a Syrian delegate. The Syrian assailed Israel as the aggressor in the Middle East.

An Israel demand for the opportunity to reply to the attack received some support from other delegations.
