Background: Egypt has called for an urgent meeting of the United Nations Security Council, President Sadat said on Monday (3 May). The President was speaking before the swearing-in of a new Egyptian Justice Minister.
The Security Council should take action, say the Egyptians, over what they call Israel's "oppressive and terrorist measures" against Arabs on the West Bank of the River Jordan.
A young Arab was shot dead in the Israeli-occupied West Bank on Saturday (1 May) during a clash between stone-throwing Arabs and an Israeli military patrol. It was the seventh death in disturbances this year.
President Sadat discussed his policies with leaders of various political organisations -- Mustafa Kamal Mourad, from the left wing social liberal faction and Khaled Moheildine, of the right wing national group. The President also spoke with editors from the newspapers, radio and television.
The new Justice Minister is Ahmed Samih Talaat. He was a councillor attached to the Justice Ministry and comes to the position after the death of his predecessor, Adel Younes.
Vice-President Hosni Mubarak and Prime Minister, Mamdouh Salem, also attended the ceremony.
