(Studio) 1300 members of Arab peace-keeping force move into Lebanon. Arab League truce ignored. Christians step up attacks on Tell Zaatar Palestinian refugee camp. Palestinians accuse Christians of blood bath at Jisr el-Pasha camp.
REPORTER: Walter Cronkite

(Lebanon) Part of Jisr el-Pasha camp set on fire after capture; victory won by National Liberal party and Phalangist party Christians continue to fight for Tell Zaatar camp. Palestine Leftist Alliance tries in vain to reach Tell Zaatar with reinforcements. Palestinians will retaliate for victories at camps, causing less chance for war settlement.
