    Background: ANSWERING TUNISIA'S CALL FOR ARAB AID OVER THE FRANCO-TUNISIAN BIZERTA FIGHTING, EGYPT SENT A RED CROSS UNIT IN MILITARY TRUCKS AND WITH MILITARY ESCORT TO TUNIS, AUGUST 3.

    THE UNIT'S RED CROSS PERSONNEL ARE TO HELP TUNISIAN FAMILIES UPROOTED IN THE FOUR-DAY BIZERTA FIGHTING.

    ONE OUTCOME OF THE BIZERTA DISPUTE WAS TO BRING EGYPT AND TUNISIA TOGETHER AGAIN: THAT DAY THE TWO COUNTRIES AGREED TO RESTORE DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS SEVERED IN OCTOBER, 1958, OVER A TUNISIAN ALLEGATION OF EGYPTIAN PLANS TO ASSASSINATE PRESIDENT BOURGUIBA. EGYPT DENIED THE ALLEGATION.
