    EX-KING SAUD OF ARABIA RETURNED TO CAIRO ON TUESDAY NIGHT AFTER A THREE-DAY VISIT TO THE YEMEN. AT A BANQUET THE PREVIOUS EVENING HE REITERATED HIS DETERMINATION TO FIGHT TO THE DEATH TO REGAIN THE SAUDI ARABIAN THRONE.

    HOST AT THE BANQUET WAS THE COMMANDER OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC (U.A.R.) FORCES IN THE YEMEN, MAJOR-GENERAL TALAAT HASSAN. THE EX-KING WAS ACCOMPANIED BY MARSHAL ABDEL HAKIM AMER, FIRST VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC.
