Witness: Taba

last thursday morning (29th june), 8.50-9.00am, on bbc world service radio
the disputed resort of taba (in the witness series) (presented by louise hidalgo)

“A dispute between Israel and Egypt over a tiny strip of beach on the Red Sea soured relations between the two countries for years.
Israel captured Taba on the Sinai Peninsula during the Six Day War, but refused to return it until 1989 when the Egyptians bought the luxury hotel and beach-hut village that Israeli developers had built on it.
Louise Hidalgo talks to former US judge Abraham Sofaer who helped negotiate the deal.”
