Background: President Sadat of the U.A.R. attended the Hussein Mosque in Cairo today (Saturday) as Egypt awaited world reaction to his offer of reopening the Suez Canal in exchange for a partial withdrawal of Israeli forces. Mr. Sadat made an early morning visit to the Mosque before the start of the Moslem feast of Byram. Each year Moslems begin the feast by killing a sheep and distributing the meat to the poor.
