  • Description

    The United Nations Security Council has been debating the Israeli raid on Uganda's Entebbe Airport, in which a hundred hostages from a hijacked airliner were rescued and flown to freedom. Britain and the United States put forward a joint proposal that all nations condemn and punish aerial hijacking. Tanzania countered with another proposal -- sponsored by several African countries -- that Israel be condemned for the raid a week earlier (4 July) in which the hostages were forcibly snatched from the clutches of the hijackers.

    SYNOPSIS: The 15-nation security Council heard arguments in favour of both proposals -- roughly divided among the western world and the so-called third world including Africa and the Middle East. Among the speakers were the Ambassadors of Britain, Mauritius, Somalia and West Germany.
