News for this 10th of June in 1967 had a lot to do with the Middle East. Notably, the Israeli advance on Syria and the approach to Damascus. Cause for much concern in diplomatic circles. The Soviet Union decided it was best to break off ties and the United Nations issued warnings. Still, the effects of this latest War in the Middle East had noticeable repercussions all around. Egypt’s President Nassar offered his resignation the day before, but in an abrupt about-face told sources he wasn’t, in fact resigning.
Meanwhile, the Summer of Love continued with reports of more air raids on Hanoi in Vietnam with one U.S. plane down, the pilot missing, and a Vietcong mortar attack on Pleiku claimed 24 people, including two Americans. The love continued.
Joseph Cardinal Ritter, Archbishop of St. Louis died in the wake of two heart attacks from earlier in the week. Vice-President Humphrey in the hospital for a mild bladder infection. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King outlined a four-point plan to reduce poverty and improve the living condition of African-Americans in Cleveland.
All that and more, but mostly about the situation in the Middle East for this June 10th in 1967 as presented by ABC News Around The World.
