NEW YORK (JT.A) —
The World Jewish Congress
has condemned last week's
attack on Ephraim Eldar,
the Israeli Ambassador to
Portugal, in which Eldar
and three other persons
were wounded and his Por-

Eldar was reported in
good condition following
surgery at the Santa Maria
Hospital in Lisbon. Hospital
officials said the 44-year-old
Israeli envoy was hit in the
'ght leg and arm and was
,.eated for fractures and a
severed artery but is out f
danger.
The assassins are still at

large. Although several ex-
tremist groups have
claimed credit for the at-
tack, the Portuguese

the killers.
