    Background: Thousands of Tanzanians joined Arabs diplomats in a mourning procession for President Nasser in Dar Es Salaam yesterday and Ivory Coast Ministers signed a condolence book in Abidjan. These tributes to the late Egyptian leader were among many throughout the world as the funeral of the late President took place in Cairo.

    In Dar Es Salaam government officials, diplomats and religious leaders joined members of the Egyptian Embassy in a silent procession through the city led by a TANU Youth League Guard of honour. At a mosque a religious service was held - the mourning ceremony taking place at the same time as the service in Cairo. In common with similar processions throughout the Arab world, the mourners carried flowers and portraits of the late Egyptian leader.

    At the United Arab Republic Embassy in Abidjan, Arabs living in the Ivory Coast listened to a radio broadcast of the Cairo funeral. Most of Abidjan's Arab population assembled at the embassy to witness the signing of a condolence book in memory of President Nasser by all Ivory Coast Ministers at present in the country.

    Nineteen Ministers signed the book including the Animal Husbandary Minister, Mr Dika Garba, and the Minister of Technical and Professional training, Mr Barry Bttesti.
