  • Description

    King Hussein of Jordan left Morocco on Friday (2 March) after a two-day stop-over visit on his way back to Amman from the Untied States. He was seen off at Fez Airport by King Hassan of Morocco.

    Officials described the Jordanian monarch's visit as private and gave no details of his activities during the day after announcing he had conferred with King Hassan at the Royal Palace in Fez for one hour on Thursday night (1 March).

    During the King's stay in Morocco, Black September guerrillas were holding the Jordanian Charge d'Affaires and other diplomats in the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Khartoum, Sudan. Among other demands, the guerrillas were asking for the release of Arab Commandoes held in Jordan.

    King Hussein had originally planned to spend only 24 hours in Morocco, but he delayed his departure for nine hours. From Fez, he flew to Amman via Spain and London.
