  • Description

    King Hussein of Jordan told a British ham radio operator based near London last night: "There has been lots of damage and lots of losses here, but we are certain it will be a turning point, and maybe something better for everyone will develop. "King Hussein made the remarks during a conversation with radio enthusiast Laurie Margolis, a 20-year-old university student who lives at Ilford in Essex, near London.

    King Hussein is a keen radio hobbyist, and he has spoken to Mr. Margolis quite frequently in the past. But last night's conversation was only the second since the outbreak of fighting in Jordan.

    The King asked Mr. Margolis to convey a message to his wife, Princess Muna, who is staying in London at the moment. King Hussein's message to his wife was "Everything is fine here." Reception of King Hussein conversation was occasionally garbled. A full transcript of the conversation follows:
