2. Translation
The Shah of Persia was attacked by three Babis, but he was only lightly hurt. The Babis are a religious sect, which denies the Quran and the prophet Muhammed. It is said that they are Communists and have several wives. The sect has developed during the last three or four years and numbers around 50,000 adherents. They are now in open revolt against Persia and 300 of the Babis have decided to kill the Shah.
