Description

Tlie peace, however, did not last long, and Nur ed-Din
sent Shirkuh again with many Frankish free-lancers
against the ill-fated country. On the approach of the
amiy towards Cairo, the vizier set fire to the ancient city
of Fost√Ęt, to prevent it from falling into the hands of
the invaders, and it burned continually for fiftv days.
El-Adid now sought aid of Nur ed-Din, who, actuated by
zeal against the Franks, and by desire of conquest, once
more despatched Shirkuh.
