Only Three Held for Trial in Israel As Result of Anti-pauls Riot

All but three of the 15 demonstrators arrested during Thursday’s riots, when the new West German Ambassador presented his credentials to President Zalman Shazar, were released this weekend. Police will probably charge the remaining three with unlawful assembly and interfering with a police officer in the carrying out of his duties.

Meanwhile, the Israel Government today requested its mission in Cologne to send to it the complete text of the statement attributed to Eric Mende, the West German Vice-Chancellor, calling the Jerusalem demonstrations against the German envoy a resort to “noxious Communist-Fascist methods.”
