  • Description

    At Cairo international airport on February 2nd United Arab Republic paratroopers arrived following their Government's order to withdraw from the United Nations force in the Congo.

    A few relatives were there to greet the men, and there was a small official ceremony of welcome -- performed by the Vice-President and Commander-in-Chief, Marshal Abdel Hakim Amer. The paratroopers were still wearing their blue United Nations berets.

    Other countries have announced also that they will withdraw their forces at present in the Congo, in spite of Mr. Hammarskjold's urgent plea that their absence will seriously weaken the United Nations force. The U.A.R. troops were flown to Cairo in United States planes.
