    Various shots of Moslems washing around a pool before praying at a mosque.

    Firemen work to put out a blazing building. Several shots of a street littered with debris and dead or wounded people. A group of men carry a dead or injured person on a stretcher. Other debris lies about the street. Another wounded person is carried on someone's back.

    L/S of city with smoke rising. L/S of a street with debris on fire in the centre. Shots in a town of people milling about and traffic going by. Empty street with modern buildings or shops either side. Padlocked and bolted doors. Brief shot of smoke rising from buildings.

    Several shots at a refugee camp where people are putting up tents and walking about with jugs of water. Line of refugees queues with pails for water - mostly women and children. A woman fills a bucket at a feeble water pump. Pan along the line of young boys and men waiting for their turn with teapots, jugs and cans. People sit in the shade and wash with water from their pots or prepare food.

    People walk along a wide avenue. In a square a man in a fez is pestered for money or food by children. General view of exterior of magnificent mosque with tented areas outside. Sign reading Connaught Place. Wide, western-style crescent with large, white, Georgian-style buildings.

    Refugees walk along streets with bundles on their heads. Crowds of people on steps of mosque and milling about the forecourt. Others seem to be taking shelter in the archways and cloisters.
