A bomb threat delayed a Saudi Arabian airliner for four hours in Cairo, the Middle East News Agency reported Friday. The plane, carrying 411 passengers, was preparing to take off for Jidda, Saudi Arabia, late Thursday night when an anonymous telephone caller told airline officials it would explode within minutes. Police using specially trained dogs found nothing and allowed the airliner to leave. Egypt has sent thousands of troops to Saudi Arabia.

Camels are familiar animals in Saudi Arabia but are afforded CERTAIN PRIVILEGES as the only beast of burden that can live in the desert. Every few miles along the Riyadh road, for example, is an interchange with entrance and exit ramps and a bridge over the highway. But the ramps, with signs reading "Desert Access" and "Beware of Camels," lead nowhere but into the sand dunes. The bridges have been built for the safe crossing of camels and their herders.
