Rabbi Baruch Korif, who was arrested last week on charges of allegedly plotting to drop leaflets and bombs on London, entered his seventh day of a hunger strike protesting his arrest. His condition was described here as “quite feeble.”
Despite a plea from the Rabbinical College of New York, police officials asserted, Korff is continuing his fast. The 33-year-old chairman of the American Political Action Committee for Palestine reiterated yesterday that the proposed flight was to have been a trial parachute jump over London and not a leaflet or bombing run.
