Important Development Due in Israeli Probe of Jerusalem Cinema Outrage

Download PDF for this date

An important announcement by police was expected soon today in the investigation of last Sunday night’s bombing attempt at the Zion Cinema in Jerusalem.

The Army and security services have complimented the Jerusalem police on their handling of the matter. It was an alert policeman who foiled the attempt when he dashed out of the crowded theater with the live bomb and dumped it in an isolated area where it exploded harmlessly.
