Jack Monteith Berry,81, a New York fruit broker who became one of Florida's largest citrus growers, died Friday in Winter Haven, Fla. The last of the original citrus barons, he is credited with trailblazing the 1960s expansion of the citrus industry. During the next two decades, he created a citrus empire estimated to cover more than 45 square miles.

Ismail Fahmy,75, a former Egyptian foreign minister who resigned his post in 1977 to protest then-President Anwar el Sadat's peacemaking visit to Israel, died Friday in a Cairo hospital after suffering a heart attack, Egypt's Middle East News Agency said.
