    RED CROSS OFFICIALS AND ISRAELI TROOPS WAITED IN VAIN FOR OVER AN HOUR YESTERDAY (MONDAY) FOR THE RETURN OF THE BODY OF AN ISRAELI COMMANDO RAID ACROSS THE SUEZ CANAL.

    THE RETURN OF THE BODY HAD BEEN ARRANGED UNDER THE SUSPICES OF THE RED CROSS AND THE DELEGATE TO THE EAST BANK MR. STEFAN SVIKOVSKY WAS ON HAND TO SUPERVISE.

    ACCOMPANIED BY ISRAELI TROOPS AND UNITED NATIONS OBSERVERS HE WAITED FOR AN HOUR-AND-A-HALF ON THE CANAL BANK FOR THE LAUNCH TO ARRIVE FROM THE EGYPTIAN SIDE.

    BUT WHEN IT DID PUT IN WEST BANK RED CROSS REPRESENTATIVE MR. MARCEL BUSSARD BROUGHT WITH HIM ONLY PARCELS FOR PRISONERS OF WAR. HE SAID THAT THE REASON GIVEN BY THE EGYPTIAN FOR POSTPONING THE TRANSFER WAS THAT THE CAR CARRYING THE BODY HAD BEEN DELAYED IN AN ACCIDENT.
