Israel Delegation at U.N. Preparing Reply to Egyptian Charges

The Israel delegation to the United Nations is preparing a written reply to be submitted to the Security Council in answer to Egyptian complaints of the expulsion of Bedouin tribesmen from Israel to Egyptian territory, it was learned this week-end. Egypt made a formal complaint to the Council earlier this month.

The reply, it is understood, will also deal with allegations contained in the report made to the U.N. this week by Maj. Gen. William Riley, truce mission chief.
