A murder accusation which threw the entire Jewish population of the township of Nasielsk in turmoil was exploded today by the discovery of the alleged victim alive and sound.

A Jewish merchant of the town was accused of having murdered for ritual purposes the 13-year old son of a peasant. The story spread among the peasants, and the menace of an attack by the peasants was averted only when the police found the boy unharmed.
