    After the ceremony, the Presidential party went on to pay homage at the grave of president Nasser, who died on 29 September 1970.

    On Sunday (5 November) Vatican Radio broadcast a message of greeting to all Moslems marking the end of Ramadan, and suggested closer link between the two faiths to 'help men overcome the modern idols or money, power and pleasure.'

    This year Vatican Radio broadcast a message of greetings to all Moslems celebrating the end of the Ramadan feast, suggesting closer links between the two faiths 'to help men overcome the modern idols of money, power and pleasure.' Father Cuoq of the Vatican's Islam office said in the message that Moslems were aware that the friendship offered by catholics was no mere formality, 'but something we really mean.'
