A police bomb expert in Santiago, Chile, was blinded and lost both of his hands while trying to dismantle a letter bomb mailed from Athens to Samuel Goren, the Honorary Israel Consul in Santiago, the Evening News reported today. Goren is a Chilean Jew. Meanwhile, Scotland Yard repeated its warnings to exercise utmost care in handling mail. A Scotland Yard spokesman said that no letter bombs have been discovered here recently but the tragedy in Chile and a recent letter bomb found in Australia, also mailed from Athens, made it necessary to repeat the warning.
