Six local employees of the Israel legation in Bucharest–four Jews and two non-Jews–were arrested by the Rumanian authorities, between December 1958 and March of his year, the Foreign Ministry reported today. The non-Jews have already been released but have not returned to work at the legation while four Jews–one man and three women–are still under arrest, the official communique stated.
