Bomb Destroys Writer’s Home

The home of author-journalist Jean Dutourd was destroyed by a bomb blast yesterday and responsibility was claimed by the hitherto unknown “Franco-Arab Rejection Front.”

Dutourd was away on holiday and no one was injured in the building but most apartments were destroyed. A statement issued by the group said Dutourd “had placed his pen at the service of the Jewish press.” Dutourd works as an editorial writer for France Soir, which has often supported Israel.
