    EDITORS NOTE: OUR PROD. NO. 8338/67 "ARAB FOREIGN MINISTERS MEET TO PREPARE FOR ARAB SUMMIT"

    Script is copyright Reuters Limited. All rights reserved

    Background: MORE THAN 30 PEOPLE DIED IN FLOODS WHICH HIT KHARTOUM, THE CAPITAL, AND MOST OTHER PARTS OF SUDAN RECENTLY. THE STREETS OF KHARTOUM WERE RUNNING WITH MORE THAN TWO INCHES (FIVE CENTIMETRES) OF WATER AND TRAFFIC WAS HELD UP. THE VIOLENT RAINSTORMS CAME ONLY JUST A WEEK BEFORE THE SCHEDULED MEETING OF FOREIGN MINISTERS FROM 13 ARAB STATES IN KHARTOUM.

    IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE STORM, KHARTOUM WAS CUT OFF FROM NORTHERN AND EASTERN PARTS OF THE COUNTRY AS RAIN WASHED OUT RAILWAY LINES AND TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH POLES.

    THOUSANDS OF CATTLE WERE ALSO SWEPT AWAY BY THE FLOODWATERS, AND THE GOVERNMENT PROVIDED EMERGENCY MEASURES TO AID THE HOMELESS AND OTHER VICTIMS.

    YESTERDAY (SATURDAY) THE ARAB MINISTERS' CONFERENCE WAS FORMALLY OPENED IN KHARTOUM. THEY WERE MEETING TO PREPARE A DRAFT AGENDA FOR AN ARAB SUMMIT DUE TO OPEN THERE ON TUESDAY (AUGUST 29).
