Forty-eight Jews, including four women, were released today from the Latrun detention camp, but none of the Jewish Agency leaders, held since June 29, was among them, though rumors were circulating concerning their “imminent release.”

An Agency spokesman today stated that it “has so far received no encouraging sign” that Moshe Shertok, head of its political department, will be released from detention. He added that the Jewish Agency could only take part in the London conference on Palestine “as a free partner with its freely elected representatives.”
