JERUSALEM (Feb. 24)
Fourteen East Jerusalem and West Bank Arabs were remanded in custody today in connection with last Friday’s bombing of the Supersol supermarket in West Jerusalem which took two lives. Another 91 Arabs rounded up for questioning after the blast have been released, police said. A blackout has been clamped on the progress of the investigation. Two of the Arabs retained in custody by a Jerusalem magistrate are employees of the supermarket, the largest in Jerusalem.
A new rash of school strikes spread in West Bank towns today, apparently in response to calls on the Amman radio and local incitement. The strikes were against what was termed “Israel’s measures in the occupied territories.”
