  • Description

    There was a major crossing of the Suez Canal yesterday (Tuesday) -- and it didn't result in any increase in Middle East tension. A total of 357 Arab students from the Gaza Strip crossed the canal into Egypt ready to start a new term at schools and universities in Egypt and other Arab countries.

    Israeli and Egyptian soldiers watched the passage of the students -- some of the estimated 800 who had been expected to visit their home in Gaza during the summer vacation. Arrangements for the visit were originally made through the International Red Cross.
