  • Description

    Film - which is developed and accompanied by an uncut magtrack - shows the transfer of some of the 100 bodies from the Libyan jet from Israel to Egypt. They were transferred across the Suez Canal at Kantara under the auspices of the International Red Cross. They were brought in whitewood coffins to the canal bank by Israeli Army trucks. A rabbi read excerpts from Psalms 23 and 24 as the first bodies were carried to the launch. On the otherside they were received by an Egyptian honour guard and taken to Cairo, their original destination - until they were shot down by an Israeli jet after the Libyan place which had strayed into the Sinai refused to land.
