  • Description

    A YUGOSLAV LINER ARRIVED TODAY (MONDAY) AT THE CYPRIOT PORT OF FAMAGUSTA, WITH ALMOST 500 INDIAN AND YUGOSLAV TROOPS FROM THE UNITED NATIONS EMERGENCY FORCE IN THE MIDDLE EAST. THE TROOPS HAD BOARDED THE LINER, ISTRIA, YESTERDAY IN THE ISRAELI PORT OF ASHDOD.

    THE TROOPS HAD BEEN STATIONED ALONG THE ISRAELI-SINAI BORDER UNTIL THE UNITED NATIONS FORCE WAS WITHDRAWN LAST MONTH AT THE REQUEST OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC.

    SOME 200 INDIAN TROOPS LEFT THE LINER TODAY TO CONTINUE THEIR HOMEWARD VOYAGE. THEY HAD WAITED FOR TWO DAYS IN ASHDOD TO GET A SHIP. THE YUGOSLAV TROOPS REMAINED ABOARD THE LINER TO CONTINUE THEIR JOURNEY HOME.

    ABOUT 300 INDIAN AND 400 BRAZILIAN TROOPS WERE STILL IN ISRAEL TODAY, BUT REPORTS SAY THEY MAY REACH CYPRUS TOMORROW.
