  • Description

    THERE WERE FURTHER DEMONSTRATIONS IN CAIRO TODAY (SATURDAY) AS MILITANT GROUPS PARADED THROUGH THE STREETS CHANTING ANTI-AMERICAN AND ANTI-ISRAELI SONGS AND WAVING BANNERS AND PLACARDS. MEANWHILE MOVES WERE TAKING PLACE THROUGHOUT THE MIDDLE EAST AREA RELEVANT TO THE MIDDLE EAST CRISIS.

    EGYPTIANS WERE DEMONSTRATING IN SUPPORT OF PRESIDENT NASSER'S POLICY OF BLOCKADING THE STRATEGIC GULF OF AQABA TO ISRAELIS SHIPPING.

    ISRAELI'S NEW DEFENCE MINISTER, MOSCHE DAYAN, DECLARED IN TEL AVIV THAT ISRAEL WELCOMED ALL THE HELP SHE COULD GET ON THE DIPLOMATIC FRONT. BUT HE SAID - "WE DON'T WANT ANYONE ELSE TO FIGHT FOR US".

    A SPECIAL SATURDAY MEETING OF THE UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL ADJOURNED AFTER YET ANOTHER INCONCLUSIVE DEBATE ON THE CRISIS. ISRAEL'S DELEGATE, MR. GIDEON RAFAEL, SAID HIS COUNTRY WOULD ACCEPT NOTHING LESS THAN COMPLETE FREEDOM OF THE GULF OF AQABA. HE ALSO ATTACKED WHAT HE CALLED "INTIMIDATION" BY THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC.

    BRITISH PRIME MINISTER HAROLD WILSON FLEW FROM WASHINGTON TO NEW YORK FOR A MEETING WITH UNITED NATIONS SECRETARY GENERAL U THANT. HIS DECISION TO CONFER WITH HE SECRETARY GENERAL WAS UNDERSTOOD TO BE PARTLY BECAUSE BRITAIN BELIEVES THE SECURITY COUNCIL COULD STILL PLAY A LEADING IN THE INTERNATIONAL EFFORTS TO SOLVE THE CRISIS.

    MORE UNITED STATES AND RUSSIAN WARSHIPS MOVED INTO THE CRISIS AREA. AN AMERICAN DESTROYER ARRIVED AT PORT SAID TO GO THROUGH THE SUEZ CANAL AND THREE DESTROYERS ENTERED THE BOSPHORUS ON THEIR WAY FROM BLACK SEA TO THE MEDITERRANEAN.
