  • Description

    Twenty-nine women and children and one wounded man evacuated from Amman reached Cyprus on Wednesday night (Sept 23) aboard a DC 6 cargo aircraft.

    The women, some nursing small children, told of life in Amman during the last week's fighting.

    Twelve of those on the aircraft were children and the only man was professor Viktor Lorenz, a Czechoslovakian town planner, who was wounded in the head and leg when his apartment was hit by a shell.

    Many of the women and children looked tired and distressed as they left the aircraft.

    Most of those evacuated on the flight were British but there were also wives of United Nations employees and women of other nationalities.
