    Background: Ceremonies on Mount Herzl, Jerusalem marked Israel's Remembrance Day on Wednesday (24 april). Mr. Yitzhak Rabin, the man chosen to replace Mrs. Golda Meir as leader of the Israeli Labour Party, laid a wreath at the Memorial Stone, watched by relatives and friends of nearly 12,000 people killed in the five wars Israel has fought since its independence in 1948.

    Following tradition, the women made no effort to hide their emotions and there were many scenes of grief-stricken mourning at gravesides.

    Later in the day Mr. Yeshajahu, the Speaker of the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament, was the principal figure at a torch ceremony on Mount Herzl. During this event twelve torches are lit, one for each of the twelve tribes of Israel and the flags of the army and the state are passed from one unit to another.

    This year the last person t light a torch was Iris Shitrit, aged nine, who lost her mother and her brothers during the recent massacre at Kiyath Shmone.
