Download PDF for this date

Israeli-Egyptian cooperation reached new heights this week when an Israeli doctor delivered an Egyptian baby aboard a Belgian Sabena Boeing over the North Atlantic. The woman, Mrs. Falem Makkar, gave birth on the floor of the plane before landing at Brussels Airport. The mother, a Cairo resident, named the boy, Jimmy, in honor of President Carter’s efforts for peace.
