President Gamal Abdel Nasser embraced him warmly as he began his 17-day state visit to the United Arab Republic. A surging crowd broke through police lines as he drove in an open car to the railway station. Similar crowds jammed around the Cairo railway station as Khrushchev arrived to a booming 21-gun salute after his triumphant procession through the delta. Since early morning there were unnumbered thousands in the towns of Damimhourp, Bemha and Tam- ta, where his train made brief pauses.

An informed source said the FBI had traced ownership of a powerful revolver found in the wreckage to a man who took out an insurance policy in excess of $50,000 on his life just before boarding the plane.
