Reward Offered For News In Murders Of Gypsies

Compiled From Wire Services

The government posted a reward of $320,000 Friday for evidence leading to arrests in the killings of four Gypsies.

The four were slain today by a pipe bomb concealed in the support of an anti-Gypsy sign and rigged to explode if someone tried to remove the sign.

Police suspect the killings in Oberwart were carried out by the persons responsible for a bombing Monday in a nearby village that is home to many ethnic Croats. One person was injured in that bombing.
