Other reports reaching here today confirm the creation of a special section of the French police which will deal only with Jews and which will be entrusted with carrying out all the various anti-Jewish regulations. They also will be responsible for selecting Jewish hostages when the Nazis decide to shoot more Frenchmen in reprisal for attacks on members of the occupation forces.
