See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

One Arab prisoner has been killed and one wounded, while the third has surrendered, thus bringing to an unsuccessful end the attempt to escape from the Jaffa prison, according to a report today to the London DAILY EXPRESS.

The prison guards on learning of the disappearance of the prisoners traced the men to the orange groves near Jaffa, whither a detachment of two officers and eight policemen were sent to recapture the prisoners. Fighting ensued between the prisoners and their pursuers with the result that one was killed outright and the other wounded.
