  • Description

    THE ISRAELI DEFENCE MINISTER, GENERAL MOSHE DAYAN, IS IN HOSPITAL WITH AN INJURED SPINE AND SEVERAL BROKEN RIBS. THE GENERAL IS SAID TO BE IN A STEADILY IMPROVING POSITION. THE TOUGH, ONE-EYED, SOLDIER-POLITICIAN WAS INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT AT AN ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE ON WEDNESDAY.

    GENERAL DAYAN WAS DIGGING IN A TRENCH AT A SITE HE HAD DISCOVERED NEAR HULON SUBURB, JUST OUTSIDE TEL AVIV. SUDDENLY A WALL OF THE TRENCH CAVED IN AND ROCKS AND EARTH CRASHED DOWN OVER HIS HEAD. HE LAY BURIED BY THE EARTH UNTIL A WOMAN DISCOVERED THE ACCIDENT. LOCAL PEOPLE THE DRAGGED HIM FREE FROM THE TRENCH AND GENERAL DAYAN WAS RUSHED TO HOSPITAL. FIRST REPORTS INDICATED THAT HE WOULD NEED AN OPERATION BUT THERE ARE NOW GOOD PROSPECTS THAT HE WON'T REQUIRE SURGERY. ARCHAEOLOGY IS THE FAVOURITE PEACE TIME HOBBY OF GENERAL DAYAN.
