    Background: King Hussein of Jordan flew into London today (Monday) at the controls of Jordanian Air Force Caravel on a hastily arranged visit that took British officials by surprise. The King was due to go to Libya today but cancelled the visit to come to London.

    The visit was announced as a private one, likely to last about 10 days. However, there is speculation that it may be connection with current military tension between Jordan and Israel, and the King is expected to meet British Government leaders.

    King Hussein makes frequent private visits to London. He has substantial connections with Britain through his British-born wife and his own education in Britain. He's accompanied on his present visit by his brother, Prince Mohammed, and a number of aides.
