Mob Wrecks El Al Offices in Teheran

The El Al offices in Teheran were wrecked by a mob of several hundred people Sunday. No one was injured. Soldiers dispersed the vandals after the rampage had gone on for two hours. The attack was aimed specifically at El Al, apparently as a result of anti-Israel statements by Ayatullah Khoumeini, the exiled Moslem leader who lives outside of Paris. Meanwhile, El Al has rented new office space in Teheran.
