Jordanians and Israelis jointly supervise a reunion of families split by the '67 war. For the sake of protocol, the reunion had to take place squarely in the middle of a bridge over the Jordan River. When the time was up, the head of the family, holding his grandchild pleaded with the Jordanian soldier for just a few more minutes before returning to Israel.
