London’s ‘jewish Chronicle’ Building Bombed; Police Investigating

Download PDF for this date

A bomb blast shattered the front office of the new building of the Jewish Chronicle last night as the weekly newspaper was going to press. Some 40 persons were in the building but no one was injured.

Firemen, police and detectives of the Special Branch rushed to the scene. The consensus was that the blast was a professional job. Police salvaged most of the metal fragments from the bomb container.

The explosive, apparently a time bomb, was left at the building entrance. The blast shattered glass doors, smashed holes in the marble facing on the walls and roof of the entrance walls, as well as windows of cars in the street nearby.
