Egypt Reported Selling Confiscated Israel Cargo in New Packaging

Evening newspapers reported here today that the Israel cargo confiscated recently by the United Arab Republic from the German freighter Lealotta and the Liberian ship Captain Manolis in the Suez Canal has been re-sold in new packaging at reduced prices in Hong Kong.

Reports received here indicated that URA officials had not yet unloaded the Israel cargo aboard the Danish Inge Toft vessel which has been detained at Port Said for several days.

The Knesset Foreign Affairs Committee, at a closed session today, heard a report from Prime Minister David Ben Gurion and key Foreign Ministry officials on the Suez seizure developments.
