Arabs Charged
In Lynching

Jerusalem (JTA) — Nearly
100 residents of Kabatiya
village in the West Bank have
been accused in Nablus
military court of constituting
a lynch mob responsible for
the death of a fellow villager,
who allegedly cooperated
with the Israeli authorities.
Formal charges were
brought against 47 of the
suspects May 11 and 48 more
were to be charged May 12.
They were brought into the
courtroom in groups of five.
All pleaded not guilty.
The victim, Mohammad
Ayed Zakarani, 29, died Feb.
24. According to the charge
sheet, a crowd of about 1,000
villagers set fire to his house,
driving him outside, where he
was beaten to death with an
axe and hanged from a utili-
ty pole.
Some of the defense lawyers
claim their clients were not
present at the lynching.
Others say the charge sheet is
unclear, and several argued
that Zakarani died of a heart
attack.

Latin American
Aliyah Rise Seen

Jerusalem (JTA) — The
World Zionist Organization
predicts a substantial in-
crease in Jewish immigration
from South America this year,
which they attribute to poor
economic conditions in that
region.
The WZO expects at least
3,000 South American im-
migrants to arrive in 1988,
with 2,000 to 2,500 coming
from Argentina. The projec-
tion is based on recent trends
— during the first four
months of this year, 890
South American olim arrived,
652 from Argentina.
Latin American immi-
grants in 1987 totaled 1,869,
with Argentina accounting
for 1,129 of them. The
number in 1986 was 1,440, in-
cluding 831 from Argentina.

Palestinian
Averts Bombing

Tel Aviv (JTA) — An Arab

street sweeper from the West
Bank averted a possible
disaster at Tel Aviv's central
bus station May 10, when he
called the police bomb squad
to examine a suspicious look-
ing package he spotted on the
sidewalk outside the
terminal.
The object, described by sap-
pers as a "medium-size"
bomb, was safely defused.
