Anti-Semitic manifestations have occurred in Tunisia since the head offices of the Arab League were transferred there from Cairo several months ago, following the Israel-Egypt peace treaty.

Israel Radio reported today, citing travelers from Tunis, that the notorious Protocols of the Elders of Zion had recently been issued by a publishing house in the capital and that the leading newspapers were taking sometimes stridently anti-Jewish tones. The local 7000-member Jewish community has made representations, the travelers said, to President Habib Bourghiba. (By David Landau)
