Jordan today returned to Israel a young Israeli boy and a girl who were kidnapped from a beach at Elath a fortnight ago.

The youngsters, clad only in bathing suits, had been captured by a group of Jordanians who penetrated 100 yards into Israeli territory. They were brought back to this city at noon today via the Mandelbaum Gate.
