    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 6: RELIEF WORKER: "The Government, the Jordanian Government prevented us from doing our work which we came to do. We came here for the medicament. We are taking the people, the wounded people who are dying in their houses.



    REPORTER: You've got medical supplied, food and water?



    RELIEF WORKER: Yes. We have got with us the medical supplied and the rations for the people who are starving for ten or more than ten days."



    REPORTER: "Now you are being told to leave. Who by?



    GIRL: Who by? I think it is the Jordanian government. Because the Arab Governments, whether Syrian or Lebanese or Egyptian, they do not want anybody to help the population, whether palestinian or Jordanian. These wounded and dead people, they do not want us to come here and help.



    REPORTER: Are you saying that the Arab Governments are trying to hide what has happened?



    GIRL: Yes. They are trying to hide and they do not want anybody to interfere with it. It seems they do not want anybody to help the Palestinian people."

    Background: Some of the relief teams now going into Jordan are being asked to leave again. Convoys of ambulances and lorries, some of them carrying medical supplies, others carrying food and water, are being turned back towards Lebanon. And with them go the doctors and nurses who are offering to help treat the people injured during the recent fighting.

    LEBANESE GIRL RELIEF WORKER ANSWERING QUESTIONS:
    The relief teams going into Jordan are being organised by a variety of relief organisations, including the Red Cross and the Red Crescent. Since the recent bitter civil war in Jordan, both the Government and the guerrillas are very sensitive about foreign help, even medical help for the victims of the fighting.
