Background: Visnews cameras outside the Knesset (Israel's Parliament) Jan 27 filmed the Speaker, Mr. Yosef Sprinzak, reviewing a newly created 23 man - two woman Knesset Guard unit.
Flanked by Knesset members and the general populace of Jerusalem, Mr Sprinzak, took the 'march past' from a dais outside the entrance. Inside afterwards Premier Ben Gurion was filmed addressing the regular daily Knesset meeting.
For the first time since its inauguration ten years ago, the Knesset is to have armed sentries posted on a round-the-clock guard duty. Established after the recommendation of a committee headed by the Israeli Minister of Interior, the unit Commander is under the direct authority of the Knesset Sergeant-at-Arms and, through him, under the Speaker.
