Zurich Arrests Three Bombers of Synagogue

Download PDF for this date

Three non-Jewish employes of the orthodox synagogue here were arrested and arraigned in court today, charged with responsibility for the bombing of the synagogue a few days ago.

The accused declared that they were all members of the anti-Semitic National Front and admitted having decided upon the act of terrorism after attending an anti-Jewish meeting at the City Hall.

Windows and parts of the interior of the synagogue were damaged by small bombs set off inside despite the constant guard maintained at the building by police as a measure against the repetition of attacks, several of which have occurred within the past few weeks.
