"Pakistani's arrest here shocks friends"

Newspaper clipping from the January 13, 1971 edition of The Chicago News of an article regarding the arrest and indictment of Eqbal Ahmad, scholar and anti-war activist accused of conspiring to kidnap Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and blow up heating systems in federal buildings. Friends of Ahmad were “shocked” by his arrest and recalled that, ironically, he had been the target of anti-war demonstrators who broke into the Adlai Stevenson Institute of International Affairs in May 1970.
