Black Panthers Clash in Jerusalem

Three persons were injured and 16 were arrested in a clash between rival Panther groups here last night. Police said some 150 persons, led by Knesset member Shalom Cohen, planned to hold a rally in a school in the Musrara slum quarters.

At the school the group, mostly, from Tel Aviv, was met by a rival Panther group led by Reuven Abargail. After an exchange of heated words the two groups started to throw stones and strike each other. Two cars of the Shalom Cohen group were turned over. The three injured persons were taken to Hadassah Hospital and 16 persons were held by police for questioning.

Eighty Arab and Druze women leaders of working women’s councils of the Histadrut met yesterday with Mrs. Ephraim Katzir at the President’s residence. Dozens of handicraft items made by members of the Bolt David Cultural Center in Jerusalem were displayed in the garden.
