Argentine Police Arrest Gang Blamed for Anti-jewish Attacks

Police arrested seven teen-age youths and uncovered thereby a gang blamed for a series of anti-Semitic attacks in the Buenos Aires area.

The young men, in their late teens, possessed automobiles, firearms, and ammunition. They planned to establish a military training camp near La Plata to teach the arts of anti-Jewish violence. The gang maintained strict discipline. Punishment for any member who failed to obey was a dose of castor oil.
