An agreement to solve the dispute between the Christian and Moslem Arabs in Nazareth, where communal strife last week cost the lives of two persons and brought severe injuries to eight others, has been worked out by the Israeli military governor of the city with leaders of local Arab groups, it was reported here today.

Meanwhile, eight youthful Arab Catholic boy scouts who were involved in the clashes in Nazareth last week have been charged with murder. They were arraigned before a magistrate in Tiberias today and sent to prison until the court hears the case in two weeks. The curfew in Nazareth was lifted this week-end and life returned to normal.
