Israeli’s Jewelry Store Threatened

Download PDF for this date

A package delivered to an Israeli-owned jewelry shop here contained a letter signed by Direct Action, the French extreme left terrorist organization, threatening a bomb would explode unless all the jewelry in the windows was left in a bag outside.

A saleswoman there was given the parcel by a man police described as Arab-looking. The note said the parcel contained a bomb which could be detonated long distance, and that the shop, called Aviva after its owner Aviva Chaya, was under surveillance.

The saleswoman put the package on the pavement and alerted the police. An investigation has not yet determined who is responsible.
