The International Federation of Journalists may cancel a planned tour to Hungary unless the Budapest authorities reverse their refusal to issue an entry visa to the Israeli member of the delegation, Mrs. Bella Almog. The Israeli Journalists Association protested to the international body. Its president, Theo Bogart, said in reply that he has asked the Hungarian Journalists Association to pressure their government to issue the visa. If this fails Bogart said the Federation would consider cancelling its visit to Hungary.
