    Background: The convoy to Mt.Scopus left this morning from the Mandelbaum Gate area, 2 weeks and one day behind schedule. It included the normal supplies, including fuel.

    This was the result of the 4 days visit to Jordan and Israel of the U.N. Secretary General.

    The convoy was thoroughly searched by U.N. personnel in the no mans land in the presence of Israeli and Jordan officials.

    3 trucks and 2 armoured cars for the policemen constituted the convoy heading for "HADASSAH HOSPITAL and THE HEBREW UNIVERSITY on Mt.Scopus.

    BECAUSE OF STRONG PROTEST BY THE JORDANIANS PHOTOGRAPHERS WERE IMMEDIATELY EVACUATED FROM THE AREA UPON ARRIVAL AND WHATEVER COULD BE TAKEN AS DONE FROM A DISTANCE WITH OR WITHOUT A "TELE".
