(Studio) Baghdad radio reports Jordan has reached agreement with Israel to turn occupied West Bank into autonomous Palestinian state federated with Jordan. In Amman, reported that King Hussein will make momentous statement tomorrow, but plan, rather than agreement, is expected. In Jerusalem Israeli foreign minister denies agreement reached, as does Jordanian Ambassador to UN. It would be significant development for homeless guerrillas.
