Israel Charges Egypt Violates Cease-fire in Treatment of Pows

Israel has charged the Egyptians have violated the cease-fire provisions dealing with treatment of prisoners of war. In a complaint handed to the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization last night, Israel charged the Egyptians were denying Israeli POW’s visits by Red Cross representatives, preventing the prisoners from sending letters to their relatives and are preventing the repatriation of the seriously wounded and seriously ill. Israel also charged that the Egyptians have refused to return the body of Israeli pilot Lt. Moshe Goldwasser who died in prison.
