News Brief

The Security Council is scheduled to meet Monday, Nov. 1, on Egypt’s request made last week that the Council debate the “explosive situation” in the West Bank and the recent disturbances in Hebron. Sources here said the Council, after meeting, will adjourn until after the Presidential election. The sources indicated the Arabs are interested in the postponement for two reasons: after the election a U.S. veto in the Council on behalf of Israel could be avoided; the apartheid debate in the General Assembly will be over next week and full attention can be devoted to Egypt’s accusations.
