Terrorists Bomb Jews in Algerian Town; Two Attacks in One Week

A Jewish merchant and two other men were injured here today when terrorists tossed a hand grenade into the jewelry store owned by Jacob Allouche. The others injured, in addition to Mr. Allouche, were a clerk in his store and a passerby. It was the second attack of the kind in a week, in the Jewish quarter of Constantine. Last week, a bomb was thrown at another store.

Neither the terrorist who threw the grenade today, nor the one who tossed the bomb last week, has been apprehended. Residents of the Jewish quarter are concerned about the attacks. Until now, Jews have largely escaped attack by terrorists here.
