(AP) — Prince Tallal, the anti-British eldest son of murdered King Abdullah of Jordan, was reported to be furious today because his younger brother, Prince Naif, has been named regent, and thus the apparent successor to Jordan's throne. The Egyptian news magazine Akhbar El Yom, reporting this In a dispatch from Geneva, Switzerland, predicted Tallal would make a >ur- i>ris« visit to Jorrtan. If h« does so. a dynastic struggle might ensue which could plunge the whole middle east into strife. A dynastic struggle for succession ,o Abdullah's throne and a renewal of the Palestine war were seen as possibilities. Tha drama 7:111 be played out before the eyes of soviet 'lussln watching the Middle East cauldron from <.is strategic spot to the north. The tiny, 89-year old Abdullah was shot by an Arab yesterday noon he entered the Mosque ot Omar the Arab-held old city here U> pray at the tomb of his father. An official announcement Identified the assassin, who was shot down Immediately by the king's irds. as a 2t-year old Jerusalem Moslem tailor named Mus- Uphn Shukry Ashslio. Tiie Arab news agency said he wns a member of the sabotage sqimd of on underground terrorist group called the Sacred Single Organization," Friend of Britain Abdullah, staunch friend of Britain, was counted on by the West to maintain some semblance of order In the Middle Enst. The murdered king's personality was the force that made Jordan <i strong power among Arab countries, even though his smnll country wajs so poor it depended on British subsidies to keep going. A tug of war between British nnd anti-British influences appears Imminent, however, over succession to the crown. Crown prince Tallal, 40, Abdullah's eldest son, is where ha went, to In Switzerland vacation alter a nervous breakdown. Arab sources describe the crown prince as strongly anti-British. He has been replaced temporarily In the line of sue cession because of Ills ailment. Other Son I'ro-BrJflsh Princo Half, Abdullah's second son, was named regent of the kingdom which gained its independence In 1940 after being mandated In Britain since the end of World War 1. Naif is described by Arab sources as strongly pro-nritlsh. Another possible claimant Is Iraq's boy king Felsal. head of the elder branch of the Hashemlte family to which Abdullah belonged.

If first reports that Abdullah's assassin was linked with the exiled Mufti of Jerusalem prove accurate, there may be complications with Egypt whose king has given refuge to the bearded Moslem patriarch. Observers also feared a possible renewal of the Palestine war since the calming Influence of Abdullah has been removed, Israeli officials publicly mourned him.
