Jewish Laborer Killed by Jordanian Fire in Jerusalem Area

A 60-year-old Israeli civilian workman was killed today when Jordanians opened fire on a group of workers near Orah settlement south west of Jerusalem. The men were working about 100 yards from the demarcation line when they were suddenly fired upon from the Jordanian side of the border,

Israel submitted a sharp complaint to the Israel-Jordan Mixed Armistice Commission charging the Jordanians with a grave breach of the truce agreement.
