Israel Shocked
At Envoy Slaying

Egypt pledges
investigation into killing of
Israeli Embassy employee.

Jerusalem (JTA) — Israeli offi-
cials expressed shock and grief this
week at what they called a "hein-
ous" attack which killed an Israeli
diplomat and injured two embassy
employees in Cairo.
Albert Atrakchi, 30, an adminis-
trative attache at the Israeli em-
bassy in Cairo was killed and his
wife, Bane, and the wife of another
embassy diplomat, Mazal Menache,
were injured when three men
sprayed their car with submachine-
gun fire.
Israel Prime Minister Shimon
Peres called the attack "a criminal
terrorist act," the New York Times
reported.
A physician was being flown
froin Israel to the Egyptian capital
to help treat the women, who were
to be brought back to Israel together
with the body of the slain diplomat
by an El Al plane.

Various reports from Cairo gave
differing versions of the attack. The
Israelis were driving from their
home in the Mandi suburb of Cairo
to the embassy when they were at-
tacked.
According to one version, a red
Fiat car which had been following
the Israelis sped by and opened fire
on their car, in which 17 bullets
were later found. According to an-
other version, an Arab approached
the car and fired at the Israeli driver
from a short distance. The attache
was killed instantly.
Diplomats who have served at
the Israel Embassy say the Egyp-
tians take exceptional precautions to
ensure the safety of the Israelis
there.
According to a press attache at
the Egyptian Embassy in Washing-
ton Wednesday, the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs in Cairo issued the
following statement on the killing:

the Israeli Embassy in Cairo. We

MKs Stage Sit-In
In Hebron Apartment

Sit-in cause of tension
between major Israeli
political parties.

Jerusalem (JTA) — The continu-
ing takeover of an apartment in the
Arab marketplace in Hebron by six'
Likud Knesset members has created
friction between the Labor and
Likud partners in the coalition gov-
ernment and has led to a series of
charges and counter-charges by the
two sides.
Premier Shimon Peres said

Monday that the takeover by the
MKs, headed by Geula Cohen of the
Tehiya Party, who began the action
last week after a group of nearby
Kiryat Arba settlers took over the
apartment and were twice ousted by
Israeli security forces, was an effort

,

to outdo other extremist parties in
appealing to extremist sentiments in
Israel. But spokespeople for Tehiya
and the Likud contended, at' the
same time, that the squatters were
exercising the legitimate right of
Jews to settle anywhere in Bretz
Yisrael.
Defense Minister Yitzhak Rabin
visited Hebron Monday in what pro-
ved to be a fruitless effort to con-
vince the MKs to leave the apart-
ment which they claim Jews from
Hebron had bought from an Arab
owner last week following the stab-
bing of Yaacov Reiter, 45, of Kiryat
Arba as he was walking through the
marketplace, The Israeli army hail
