  • Description

    Following the Aug 29 assassination in Amman of Premier Hazza Majali, Bahjat Talhouni - described as Chief of King Hussein's Royal Cabinet - has been appointed his successor. Bahjat Talhouni is seen here with Jordanian Crown Prince Mohammed at Amman airport Dec 28, 1959, greeting King Hussein on his return from a 7-week visit to Europe.

    Hussein - now being attacked by propaganda from Iraq as well as Egypt - has called on Mr. Talhouni to "preserve security and order, and punish mean persons who aim at rioting and have been seduced by the Devil".

    He has also called for friendly relations with Arab sister-states, although rumours say the Amman bomb explosion may have been organized by the United Arab Republic and was probably directed against Hussein himself.
