Download PDF for this date

Three men were arrested in Het Gooi, 25 kilometers from here, for attacking the house of Dutch Jewish journalist Hans Knoop last month with Molotov cocktails. Knoop was instrumental in the arrest and trial several years ago of Dutch Nazi collaborator Pieter Menten who was subsequently convicted of complicity in the murder of Jews while serving with the SS in Poland during World War II.

The men arrested are also suspected in similar attacks on the house of a Protestant member of Parliament and on the anti-left Dutch broadcasting company, “Tros. ” They were identified as members of a group calling itself “Red Action Front Netherlands.”
