Terrorists Slay Two Jewish Children in Algiers; Moslem Nurse Missing

Download PDF for this date

One of the most brutal murders in the recent outbreak of terrorism against Europeans in Algeria yesterday was the slaying of two Jewish children, one two years of age and the other six years old.

The mother had left the children in the care of a Moslem serving woman while she went shopping. On her return she found their bodies with their throats cut. The Moslem was gone and has not been seen since.
