    Background: King Mohammed Zahir Shah of Afghanistan, on a 10-day State visit to the United Arab Republic, arrived in Damascus, Syria, October 26. He spent 24-hours in the city before returning to Cairo. Waiting to greet him at the airport was General Serraj and Government Ministers.

    From the airport he drove to the President's Palace, where he spent the night. Before leaving Egypt, King Mohammed visited the Valley of King in Luxor, October 24, where he watched work on the digging of the 2,252-year-old tomb of the Pharaoh Seti I.

    The State Visit ends, November 1, when the king leaves Cairo on his way back to Afghanistan.
