JERUSALEM — Soldiers and police arrested at least six Palestinian journalists today, and leaders of the Palestinian uprising issued a new leaflet calling on Arabs to store enough food for a month of civil disobedience.

At least 11 people were seized, including two editors of the pro-Palestine Liberation Organization newspaper Al Fajr, which has become a voice of the uprising. Four other journalists were arrested, along with a union leader, head of a youth council and several other Palestinians, Arab sources said. The new leaflet, the 16th issued by the United Leaders of the Uprising, called for demonstrations on the Muslim holy day, Friday, and a general strike and "day of anger" next Sunday.
