    A group of Israeli women handed a petition to United Nations Middle East peace envoy Gunnar Jarring in Jerusalem today (Tuesday). The women presented their peace petition shortly after Dr. Jarring had arrived in Israel from his Nicosia headquarters for talks with the Government.

    The seven women assembled outside the King David Hotel in Jerusalem, where Dr. Jarring is staying. At first they were refused permission to enter the hotel and present the petition, but later Dr. Jarring accepted it as he was leaving for an unknown destinations.
