Fifteen letter bombs, several of them addressed to New York, have been intercepted in Singapore, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency learned from federal and local law enforcement agencies today. Jewish organizations have been alerted and are instructing their personnel to be on the look-out for suspicious items in the mail, especially during the forthcoming holiday season. Jewish organizations are cooperating fully with law enforcement authorities, who stressed that this latest incident is evidence that the terrorists have not given up their diabolical efforts.
