Every day for a week now, dozens of towering and colorful hot-air balloons have been drifting into this kingdom, touching down at a remote desert site in southern Jordan for a lavish celebration of King Hussein's 57th birthday. From miles around, Bedouin camel herders have driven the pride of their flocks to the site in ancient Wadi Rum, where Jordanian workers have spent weeks erecting more than 100 tents, grandstands and accommodations for 40,000.

King Norodom Sihanouk returned here Friday after a six-month absence for cancer treatment, with fears persisting about his health and his country's struggle to achieve peace.

Yeltsin, whose health has been the subject of speculation, is on vacation at the Black Sea resort of Sochi and is due to return to Moscow on Oct. 10, Russian Television said Friday. The mid-evening news said Yeltsin, who played a leading role in the defeat of last month's coup against Soviet President Mikhail S. Gorbachev, is resting. Reports earlier this month of a mild heart attack caused nervousness in Western financial markets.

But Bourassa has done neither.

Until the middle of the week leading up to Sunday's crucial French vote on the Maastricht Treaty for European union, President Francois Mitterrand was confined to bed in a Paris hospital after prostate surgery. The prostate operation, which Mitterrand on Wednesday announced revealed cancerous lesions not considered dangerous by his physicians, knocked the 75-year-old French president out of political action before one of the most important votes in his long career.
