Albright tries to restart

Mid-East peace drive

With the peace process in tatters, the US Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, will go to the Middle East next month to make sure Arab and Israeli leaders know the Clinton administration remains engaged. She leaves on 9 September for a trip of at least a week's duration to Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Saudi Arabia. She will meet Yasser Arafat in Palestinian- controlled territory and may go to Lebanon as well. AP - Washington
