A 17-year-old member of an international anti-Semitic organization was killed yesterday in an explosion of a laboratory here used to make bombs for anti-Jewish terrorist activities, police reported here today.

Bombs were discovered in two other local synagogues and were remove before they could explode.

The dead youth, Horacia L. Georgetti, was the son of an Argentinian exiled here during the regime of Argentine dictator Juan Peron. Police said he and two Uruguayans, who were injured in the explosion, had been making bombs. All three belonged to a branch of an international anti-Semitic ring.
