Download PDF for this date

A young Palestinian woman said in Amman she planned and executed a supermarket explosion that killed two persons and injured nine others in Jerusalem on Feb. 21, according to reports reaching here. Rashida Abdel-hamid Ebeido said none of the estimated 500 persons arrested by Israeli authorities had anything to do with the explosion. Miss Ebeido, of Hebron on the West Bank, was said to have fled to the East Bank recently when she learned Israeli police were on her trail. A teacher in the Persian Gulf state of Bahrein until the Six-Day War, she left for Jordan in 1967 to join the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. Miss Ebeido said she has a sister still in an Israeli jail although her parents have been freed.
