Israel today returned to Egypt four Egyptian sailors who accidentally drifted into Israeli territorial waters while sailing from Fort Said to Lebanon.

A joint Israeli-Jordanian health committee dealing with anti-malaria and other health measures in the Jerusalem no-man’s land, met in the old city of Jerusalem this weekend. The committee, which is meeting under auspices of the Israeli-Jordan Mixed Armistice Commission, decided to continue the joint work and will meet again at the end of December.
