  • Description

    A CAR FULL OF EXPLOSIVES BLEW UP EARLY TODAY (SUNDAY) IN THE NORTHERN ISRAELI TOWN OF ACRE. TWO ARABS IN THE CAR WERE KILLED BUT NO OTHER DAMAGE WAS CAUSED.

    SOON AFTER THE MIDNIGHT EXPLOSION, POLICE REINFORCEMENTS WERE CALLED INTO THE TOWN AS A CROWD OF ANGRY JEWISH YOUTHS GATHERED AT THE SCENE OF THE BLAST.

    THE YOUTHS, CHANTING ANTI-ARAB SLOGANS, TRIED TO FORCE THEIR WAY INTO THE ARAB QUARTER OF THE OLD CRUSADER CITY BUT POLICE HELD THEM BACK.

    THROUGHOUT THE MORNING THE YOUTHS MADE SEVERAL FURTHER ATTEMPTS TO REGROUP AND DEMONSTRATE, BUT EACH TIME POLICE DISPERSED THEM. ONE WAS ARRESTED.

    POLICE SAID THE TWO MEN KILLED IN THE EXPLOSION WERE ISRAELI ARABS FROM THE VILLAGE OF MAGDAL EL KURUM IN GALILEE. THEIR AGES WERE GIVEN AS 28 AND 27. POLICE AND SECURITY FORCES CARRIED OUT SEARCHES IN THE VILLAGE AND MADE A NUMBER OF ARRESTS.
