  • Description

    SHELLS FIRED FROM JORDANIAN TERRITORY KILLED AN AMERICAN WOMAN AND WOUNDED FOUR OTHER TOURISTS NEAR THE DEAD SEA YESTERDAY (JUNE 17). TWO TAXIS PARKED NEARBY WERE HIT AND BURNT OUT.

    ONE OF THE SHELLS HIT A RESTAURANT INSIDE WHICH THE TOURISTS WERE SITTING, THE TAXIS WERE PARKED OUTSIDE.

    AN ISRAELI MILITARY SPOKESMAN IN TEL AVIV NAMED THE DEAD WOMAN AS SHULIE ANDERSON, 25, OF NEW YORK. THE FOUR INJURED WERE ALSO AMERICANS BUT THEIR IDENTITY WAS NOT IMMEDIATELY KNOWN.

    IT WAS THE THIRD TIME THE RESTAURANT, KNOWN AS THE "LIDO" HAS BEEN HIT BY ARTILLERY FIRE. THE PARTY OF TOURISTS, WHO HAD BEEN TAKEN TO THE BEACH FOR A SWIM, WAS IMMEDIATELY EVACUATED FROM THE AREA.

    AN OFFICIAL JORDANIAN SPOKESMAN LATER BLAMED THE ISRAELIS FOR THE TOURIST CASUALTIES CLAIMING THAT THE ISRAELIS STARTED THE SHOOTING AND ALLOWED FOREIGN TOURIST TO GO TO THE SCENE.
