State Department said today it received information of the killing of former Iraqi Prime Minister Fadhil al Jamali, pro-Nazi and enemy of Jewry, by a Bagdad mob.

Jamali was a leading Iraqi exponent of renewed warfare against Israel. When he served as Iraqi delegate to the United Nations General Assembly his anti-Israel and anti-Jewish remarks were such that Dr. Eelco van Kleffens, Assembly President, requested “more moderation” from him.
