Israeli Tour Guide Stabbed by Arabs

An Israeli tour guide was stabbed by several Arabs in their mid20’s as he led a family of Danish tourists through the ruins of Sebastia northwest of Nablus Friday afternoon. Moshe Hayuta, 33, was rushed to the Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba with stab wounds in the neck, chest and hands. He was reported in satisfactory condition. The Danish family, a couple with two children, was unharmed.

Security forces arrested 10 persons, and imposed a curfew on the archeological site and on the nearby village of Burka.

In an unrelated incident, a bomb exploded today on Jaffa’s Jerusalem Boulevard. One person was reported wounded.
