See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A bomb plot which had for its objective the killing of the liberal Hungarian leader Rassay, and the Jewish editor in chief of the liberal paper “Azest” was foiled here by the arrousing of the suspicions of two men.

Both received packages, brought by a carrier, but growing suspicious, they called in experts who ascertained the parcels were “loaded”.

Deputy Fabian in the Hungarian Assembly charged the ultra-nationalist group with responsibility for the plot.
