Bombing Seen As Criminal Vendetta

Download PDF for this date

Police investigating the booby-trap explosion that killed three people and injured six in the Givatayim past office yesterday believe it may have been the result of a criminal vendetta even though the Palestine Liberation Organization claimed that “Palestinian worriers” were responsible.

Funeral services were held today for two postal clerks, Aharon Amiga, 53 and Avraham Joseph, 54, who were killed when a parcel containing a wired hand grenade exploded, wrecking part of the post office. Amiga was the father of nine children and Joseph the father of eight. The third fatality was a woman whose name has not been released. Last night police detained a man suspected of having mailed the parcel.

There will be no Bulletin dated Oct. 13 due to Columbus Day, a postal holiday.
