Spare Aircraft Parts Cargo on El Al Seized by Swiss Custom Authorities

Swiss Customs authorities seized a cargo of aircraft spare parts from an El Al airliner that was about to take off today for Tel Aviv. The cargo, described as a “fairly large consignment of war material,” arrived here from London aboard a plane of a different airline. It contained no arms or munitions. The Swiss said the consignment had no authorization and was seized as a precaution. A Government spokesman said an inquiry would be made but declined to give further details.
