  • Description

    Visnews filmed Feb 26 Turkish Prime Minister Adnan Menderes leaving London Airport for home. He was seen off by Minister of State John Profumo and Embassy officials.

    Mr. Menderes appeared to be shaken from the effects of last week's Viscount airliner crash in Surrey in which 14 passengers and crew died.

    Flying to Istanbul with him were three other survivors of the crash. His secretary told reporters: "We have lost our friends, those we worked and ate with us. This leave-taking is sad and were turn home to see relatives and friends of those killed."
    Mr. Menderes has invited Britons who cared ??? for him immediately after the crash to be his guests in Turkey this Summer.

    Archbishop Makarios, recovering from acute sinus trouble in London, is due to leave Saturday for Nicosia.
