  • Description

    Moslems throughout Egypt yesterday (Friday) went to the mosques to pray for the Arab guerrillas killed at Munich during the attempt to hold Israeli Olympic Team members hostage.

    At the El Saida Zeinab mosque, in Cairo, women prayed for the first time with men, after obtaining permission from the Minister of Wakes, Dr.Abdel Halim Mahmoud. Normally they pray separately.

    The day was declared a day of absent prayer, and mosques were crowded with mourners.

    At the El Azhar mosque members of scientific professions attended prayers led by the mesque Sheikh, Dr. Faham.

    Five members of the eight-man group, who call themselves the Black September Organisation, were killed in the kidnapping attempt.
