UN Troops at Port Said

U.N. troops arrive at Port Said with their equipment to police the ceasefire. This intervention would actually be the first time that the U.N. successfully deployed peace keeping troops on a mission. It was decided on this operation that the UN troops would wear blue headgear to be easily identifiable as being there for a peaceful purpose and not as combatants.
