  • Description

    Emir Ibrahim el-Fareesy, Prince of Oman and cousin of the Imman of Oman, accused Britain of killing thousands of children and women in bomb raids and sorties on Oman soil. He was speaking at a Press conference convened by the Greek Anti-Colonial League in Athens November 6.

    Oman is the hinterland behind the British Aden Protectorate between the Red Sea and the Arabian Gulf. For some time the Imman has claimed the British territory and many clashes have occurred between British-led levies and Oman regular troops.

    The Emir compared British rule of Cyprus and the alleged atrocities committed there with what was happening in Oman.

    The Emir is on a Middle East-Near East tour to seek support for Oman's case at the forthcoming UN debate. The tour will end in Bulgarian in December.

    The Emir met General George Grivas ex-EOKA leader while in Athens.
