    Background: LARNACA, CYPRUS

    The West German Red Cross hospital ship, Flora, arrived at Larnaca harbour in Cyprus on August 27 carrying injured Palestinian guerrillas evacuated from Lebanon. Cypriot officials said 167 wounded guerrillas were on board and 20 of the most seriously injured were taken ashore to be transferred to hospitals in Larnaca and Nicosia. The wounded PLO troops were accompanied by Dr. Fathi Arafat, the president of the Palestinian Red Crescent society and the brother of PLO chairman, Yasser Arafat. Dr. Arafat thanked the Cypriot authorities for taking in the PLO wounded, when he spoke to journalists at Larnaca after leaving the ship. The Flora later sailed for Greece where the rest of the wounded Palestinian will be treated.
