Download PDF for this date

The FBI is investigating possible links between the violently racist and anti-Semitic National States Rights Party and the May 27 bombing of a synagogue in Meridian, Miss., the Washington Post reported today. The party has been recruiting Ku Klux Klansmen in the Meridian area, the newspaper said. The FBI has evidence indicating that some of the same people responsible for the bombing of a synagogue and a rabbi’s house in Jackson, Miss, last November are also involved in the Meridian violence. No arrests have been made in either of the cases but rewards have been posted.
