Background: King Feisal of Saudi Arabia flew into Cairo yesterday (Wednesday) to confer with other Arab heads of state on the situation in Jordan. He was originally due to have taken part in the Arab Summit Conference in Cairo, now postponed.
King Feisal is thought to have been among the Arab leaders who held talks with four Palestinian leaders who made a peace agreement with King Hussein of Jordan. The Palestinians include Mr. Salah Khalaf "Abu Iyad", second in command to Yasser Arafat. Mr. Arafat has said that his deputy is not authorised to speak for the liberation movement.
The four Palestinians flew to Cairo along with a four-man Arab peace mission, headed by President Jaafar al Nimeiry of Sudan, who had gone to Amman for talks with them and with King Hussein. The status of the Palestinians was still unclear today; some reports said that they had gone over to the Jordanian Government side; other reports said that they had been arrested.
