A number of arrests are reported in connection with the recent murder of Tewfic Bey, former Chief of Police of Jaffa. Those taken into custody include a Jewish policeman named David Beher, two civilians, Chaim Rothstein and Meyer Levine, three Arab policemen and an Arab civilian.
Tewfic Bey was killed in Jaffa about a fortnight ago. His funeral was marked by a riot in which a number of Jews were injured. The former police chief was accused of leading the Arab mob in May 1921, when more than a score of Jews were murdered.
