With King Hussein of Jordan

For 26 years King Hussein of Jordan has walked a political tightrope. The Hashemite monarch has survived countless attempts on his lite, including one at the age or 15 when an assassin’s bullet grazed a medal on his chest, seconds after the murder of his grandfather, King Abdullah, by Arab extremists in Jerusalem.
