    AT THE ATHLIT PRISONER OF WAR CAMP, NEAR HAIFA, ISRAELI GUARDSHANDED PRISONERS STENCILLED "FAREWELL LETTERS" WHICH SAID: "THE NEXT TIME, WE HOPE YOU WILL COME AS TOURISTS AND NEIGHBOURS". AS THE BUSES MOVED OFF FOR EL KANTARA, EGYPTIAN PRISONERS COULD BE SEEN TEARING UP THE LETTERS.

    ISRAEL HAS RELEASED 4,481, INCLUDING 493 OFFICER, WHILE THE UAR REPATRIATED 10 ISRAELI PRISONERS, SIX OFFICERS AND FOUR NCO'S, ACCORDING TO AN ISRAELI ARMY SPOKESMAN. SOME OF THE EGYPTIAN PRISONERS TOLD REPORTERS THEY WERE HAPPY TO GO HOME, BUT MOST REFUSED TO COMMENT.

    MANY OF THE EGYPTIAN PRISONERS, ON REACHING EL KANTAR, THREW AWAY ALL BELONGINGS GIVEN TO THEM BY THE ISRAELIS, INCLUDING CIGARETTES AND GARMENT, THEY BOARDED THE FERRY BOATS WEARING THEIR EGYPTIAN UNIFORMS.
