    Background: IN THE VILLAGE OF SANT' ANNA DI VALDIERI, AT THE FOOT OF MONTE MATTO IN THE ARGENTERA MOUNTAIN AREA, RESCUE TEAMS ARE WAITING FOR WEATHER CONDITIONS TO IMPROVE BEFORE LEAVING ON A SEARCH FOR THE CRASHED COMET AIRCRAFT BELONGING TO KING IBN SAUD.

    HEAVY SNOW HAS BEEN FALLING CONTINUOUSLY, AND AVALANCHES HAVE RUMBLED DOWN INTO VALLEYS, MAKING TRAVEL EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS.THE POLICE OFFICER IN CHARGE OF THE RESCUE OPERATION IS BELIEVED TO HAVE ASKED FOR THE LOAN OF HELICOPTERS FOR AERIAL RECONNAISSANCE.BUT EVEN AIRCRAFT ARE USELESS IN THE PRESENT BAD WEATHER -- THICK FOG BLANKETS THE REGION.

    THE LOCATION OF THE CRASH IS ALREADY KNOWN -- 6,000 FEET UP ON THE SLOPES OF THE MONTE MATTO, KNOWN AS THE 'MAD MOUNTAIN'.TO GE THERE, JEEPS WILL DRIVE THE TEAMS AS FAR AS POSSIBLE, BUT FROM THEN ON SNOW-SHOES AND SKIS WILL BE NEEDED TO CLIMB FARTHER IN TO THE MOUNTAINS.ACCOMPANYING THE RESCUE TEAMS ARE TRAINED INVESTIGATORS WHO WILL EXAMINE THE POSSIBILITIES OF SABOTAGE, AS ALLEGED BY THE KING.
