Download PDF for this date

The Israel Embassy received an explosive device in the mail Monday, triggering a bomb scare in the Jewish community.

Its representative body, the Board of Deputies of British Jews, has issued an alert for suspicious-looking letters and packages.

The device sent to the embassy was safely defused by Scotland Yard’s anti-terrorist squad.
