500 Demonstrate Against Terrorist Attack; Jews, Arabs Scuffle

Approximately 500 persons demonstrated yesterday in central Paris against the terrorist attack last week on the Savoy Hotel in Tel Aviv. Sponsored by the Union of Jewish Students, the demonstration took place in the street nearest the Arab League bureau and ended near the Place de 1’Opera.

Armed policemen, equipped with grenades, lined the streets along the way. A short scuffle between slogan-shouting Arabs and Jewish demonstrators was immediately ended by police, who physically separated the two groups. No arrests were reported.
