  • Description

    Arab guerrillas in Gaza on Monday (17 January) ambushed a small bus and killed an American nurse. An American Baptist Minister and one of his three daughters also in the bus were injured.

    The incident occurred near the Mahadi Baptist Hospital in Gaza where the Americans worked. Miss Mavis Pate, 46, from Louisiana, was shot in the head and was flown to the Beersheba Central Hospital where she died. The Minister, the Reverend Roy Edward Nicholas of Austin Texas, was shot in the legs and his 17-year-old daughter cut by flying glass.

    It is believed three or four men fired some 50 shots at the Volkswagen bus in which Miss Pato, Mr Nicholas and his three daughters were travelling. Security forces were searching the area for the assailants.
