Mercury Found in Israeli Oranges

Download PDF for this date

Mercury was found yesterday in a cargo of Israeli oranges being unloaded at a British port, sparking fears that Arab terrorists could be trying to repeat the scare they caused two years ago. Police said that a girl living near the port had eaten an orange contaminated with mercury, but so far had not suffered ill effects.
