The Egyptian Government has now formally charged three persons with the stoning to death of Stephen Haas, Philadelphia Jew filled in Cairo July 18, and has pledged officially that they will receive the punishment they merit, the State Department announced today.

The Department said, however, that it definitely does not consider the incident closed, and will watch the trial closely. It was noted that the Egyptian message, delivered August 22, was the first formal reply received to official United States protests on July 19 and 24.
