  • Description

    In the aftermath of Sunday's (20 August) Arab terrorist attack in London, in which an El Al air stewardess and a terrorist were killed, British police on Monday were holding and interviewing an unidentified Arab. Police had chased and caught the man after the attack with sub-machine guns and bombs in an El Al airlines coach near a central London hotel. As the coach with 21 airline personnel on board was pulling up outside the hotel, the terrorists raked it with machinegun fire. Police said later four grenade-type bombs went off in the twenty seconds of violence. Eleven people were injured. Police said the dead man had been fatally wounded by his own bomb. Gavin Hewitt of the British Broadcasting Corporation reports, and the Israeli Minister of Transport Meir Amit comments on security.
