Saboteurs Attempt to Derail Train Between Beersheba, Southern Negev

For the second time in a week, an effort was made by saboteurs last night to derail a train between Beersheba and the Southern Negev.

The engineer of the southbound train found that his locomotive had run into stones and sheet metal piled across the tracks. He stopped the train, and continued after the obstacles were removed. There was no damage to the train, and no injuries resulted from the incident.

Exactly a week ago, a similar effort to derail the train from Beersheba had been made near the same spot. This time, a Bedouin found loitering nearby was detained for questioning.
