  • Description

    As the Middle East shuttle diplomacy between Egypt, Israel and the United States continues, President Sadat has taken time out from his other duties to pray at a mosque not far from his rest home in Ismailia.

    SYNOPSIS: The Mosque where the President worshipped was Ismailia's Khaled Ibn El Walid mosque....and with Mr Sadat at prayers were the Governors of Ismailia and Port Said.

    Friday's prayers came at the end of a week of activity in Ismailia aimed at ending the deadlock over conflicting Egyptian and Israeli peace proposals. The day before, there'd been talks in the Suez Canal town between the President and America's Assistant Secretary of State, Alfred Atherton.

    One result of the week's Ismailia efforts has been that a message from President Sadat has gone to the Israeli Premier Mr Begin. What was in the message hasn't been disclosed, and it's being relayed to Israel by Mr Atherton.
