    Background: At a time of rising Middle East tension, the Amir of Kuwait flew to Beirut yesterday (Tuesday) at the start of an official visit to the Lebanon. President Franjieh led the welcome at Beirut airport.

    The visit follows the Amir's meeting with United States Vice President Spiro Agnew last week, during which the Middle East situation was discussed; and his arrival coincides with reports of new clashes between Jordanian troops and Palestinian guerrillas in neighbouring Jordan.
