Two black-draped coffins bearing a red Star of David were carried in front of the Iraqi mission to the United Nations here Sunday in a protest demonstration against the continuing executions of alleged spies for Israel in Baghdad. The demonstration was sponsored by Brit Trumpledor Betar, a Zionist youth group which announced that it would establish a national committee to rescue Jews in Arab lands.
