The DAIA, the central body of Argentine Jewry, reported today there had been a new anti-Semitic attack on Jewish students at the Bel-grand high school.

The DAIA reported the new incident in a telegram to Interior Minister Carlos Adrogue, who issued a public warning over Argentine radio and television last month that he would take all necessary steps to suppress a wave of such incidents during the spring and summer. The DAIA telegram accused the Tacuara, a Nazi-oriented youth group, with responsibility for the latest attack which occurred last week when the students were leaving Belgrano high school.

“We request positive intervention to stop the aggressions against the Jewish community in our country and we reiterate the urgent need for legal preventive measures against Nazi anti-Semitic centers which act openly and with impunity,” the telegram stated.
