Download PDF for this date

A life sentence was imposed yesterday on one of a group of seven East Jerusalem Arabs found guilty by a military tribunal of planting grenades in downtown Jerusalem last August. The others received sentences of from 15 to 30 years in prison. The ring-leader of the gang, Noeff Al Zarro, drew the maximum sentence. The sentences were decided by a majority vote among the judges. One recommended capital punishment as a deterrent to the terrorist acts, though the prosecution had not asked for it.
