Former President Arrives In Lebanon

Under heavy army and police guard, former President Bush arrived Tuesday for a visit that raised Lebanese hopes of Washington lifting a nine-year ban on travel here.

Bush traveled to Lebanon from Damascus, where he conferred with Syrian President Hafez Assad. Lebanon and Syria were the last scheduled stops on his Middle East tour, which also took him to Egypt, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar, Kuwait and Bahrain.
