Background: On the fourth day of his State visit, King Faisal of Saudi Arabia attended two ceremonies as the guests of the Moslem community in London. This morning he went to the Islamic Cultural centre in London, and in the afternoon took tea with the leaders of London's 80,000 Moslems.
At the Islamic Cultural centre, King Faisal saw plans for a new mosque which is to be built with funds contributed by Moslems from twenty-five countries. King Faisal offered prayers of salutation and signed the visitors' book.
At the Hilton Hotel, King Faisal was the guest at a reception given by the United Kingdom Moslem Reception Committee. There, three hundred guests assembled around the long table where the King presided. Tea was served while verses from the Koran were recited.
Tonight, King Faisal is dining with representatives of Britain's aircraft industry. The King has no official engagements this weekend, but resumes his programme of talks with the British government with a call on Mr Harold Wilson at the Prime Minister's residence in Downing Street on Monday.
