    Background: The deposed Shah of Iran arrived in Cairo on Monday (24 March) and was immediately flown by helicopter to a heavily-guarded military hospital near the capital. The ex-Shah had left his exile haven in Panama the previous day, twenty-four hours before Iran planned to start formal extradition proceedings against him.

    SYNOPSIS: President Sadat greeted the Shah at Cairo airport and accompanied him to Maadi hospital where the former monarch is to undergo treatment for a cancerous spleen. The deposed leader was in Egypt for a short period last year after the Islamic revolution in Iran. Since that visit the Shah has stayed in Morocco, the Bahamas, the United States and Panama. On his arrival at Cairo airport, the Shah, and President Sadat spoke to reporters.

    Maadi hospital is one of the most modern in the Middle East, able to handle virtually any disease. A team of fifteen doctors had been assigned to treat the Shah and a special hospital wing has been laid aside for him. Empress Farrah and six staff members accompanied the Shah to Egypt.
