Rabbi Korff on Hunger Strike for One Week; Condition Described As “feeble”

Download PDF for this date

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.
