  • Description

    Visnews filmed Saeb Salam, the former leader of the recent rebellion against President Chamoun's regime, on his arrival at Beirut airport Jan 13 when he received an uproarious welcome and was carried shoulder high by enthusiastic crowds.

    Saeb Salam returned from a five-weeks visit in Cairo where he had talks with UAR President Gamal Abdel Nasser.

    After a noisy reception at the airport thousands shouted slogans directed against ex-president Chamoun and "imperialism", and demanded "Unity under Nasser" - Saeb Salam and ex-Primier Abdullah Bey Yafi drove to Salam's fortress-like house in Beirut's Moslem quarter. Again, Saeb Salam was shouldered by the crowd and carried in triumph into the building.

    Later he spoke from a balcony to the excited Moslem population.
