    Background: DELEGATES TO THE AFRO-ASIAN SUMMIT MEETING WHICH WAS TO HAVE OPENED IN ALGIERS THIS WEEKS ARE HEADING FOR HOME AFTER THE ANNOUNCEMENT ON SATURDAY THAT THE MEETING HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL NOVEMBER. THE POSTPONEMENT FOLLOWED A COUP D'ETAT IN ALGERIA ON JUNE 19 IN WHICH COLONEL BOUMEDIENNE TOOK OVER LEADERSHIP FROM PRESIDENT BEN BELLA.

    THE CONFERENCE WAS TO HAVE BEEN ATTENDED BY DELEGATES FROM FIFTY COUNTRIES, AND HUNDREDS OF OFFICIALS AND PRESSMEN HAD ALREADY ARRIVED IN THE ALGERIAN CAPITAL FOR THE OPENING SESSIONS OF THE MEETING. A PREPARATORY MEETING OF FOREIGN MINISTERS DUE TO HAVE OPENED ON SATURDAY AFTER TWO POSTPONEMENTS HAS BEEN PUT OVER UNTIL OCTOBER 28.

    SOME DELEGATIONS WERE SAID TO BE RELIEVED THAT THE CONFERENCE WAS POSTPONED, BECAUSE OF THE UNCERTAIN SITUATION IN ALGIERS AFTER THE COUP D'ETAT.
