Details of the kidnapping of Adolf Eichmann were reported in the press here today. The report said that the Nazi war criminal was seized by Israeli agents when he left a bus in a Buenos Aires suburb about three weeks ago, to walk home.
“A car moved quickly to the curb and Israel secret agents Jumped out and seized him,” the report stated. “His family became alarmed by his absence and checked hospitals and morgues. Realizing that he must have been abducted, the family fled into hiding, without knowing that six hours after the seizure, Eichmann was on an Israeli plane headed for Tel Aviv.” The report recalled that Eichmann had been living under an assumed name in Latin America for eight years.
