    Background: KING HUSSEIN OF JORDAN IS IN WEST BERLIN ON A TWO-DAY VISIT. HE FLEW IN YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) AND THEN TOOK A COACH TO THE FRONTIER. AND FROM AN OBSERVATION POST HE LOOKED OVER THE BERLIN WALL. HE WAS ACCOMPANIED BY HIS ENGLISH-BORN WIFE, PRINCESS MUNA.

    THE KING'S VISIT TO BERLIN IS THE FIRST BY ANY ARAB HEAD OF STATE. A STRONG FORCE OF POLICE IN UNIFORM AND PLAIN CLOTHES GUARDED HIM. PART OF HIS TOUR WAS DIVERTED FOR SECURITY REASONS. FOUR HOURS BEFORE THEY HAD FLOWN IN, THERE HAD BEEN AN ANONYMOUS THREAT TO ASSASSINATE HIM, BUT ALL PASSED OFF QUIETLY.

    WHILE THEY WERE IN BONN EARLIER, THE KING'S EMBASSY THERE HAD RECEIVED THREATENING LETTERS AND A VISIT HE WAS TO HAVE MADE TO A CASINO WAS CALLED OFF. AS PART OF THE SECURITY MEASURES SURROUNDING THE KING, A NUMBER OF JORDANIAN STUDENTS, IMMIGRANT WORKERS AND EXILED OFFICERS WERE BEING KEPT UNDER OBSERVATION.

    AFTER SEEING THE WALL, THE KING CALLED ON THE WEST GERMAN PRESIDENT, HERR LUEBKE AT BELLEVUE CASTLE. THEY DISCUSSED QUESTIONS OF WEST GERMANY'S RELATIONS WITH ARAB COUNTRIES FOR ABOUT AN HOUR. THE KING IS NOW IN THE FINAL STAGES OF HIS NINE-DAY VISIT TO THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC.
