Yasser’s still dead
. . . according to at least one unnamed senior Palestinian source, while Gen. Christian Estripeau from the Percy Military Hospital in Clamart, France said Arafat “is in a coma and his condition worsened overnight”.
Mahmoud Abbas, #2 of the PLO, which today visited Yasser Arafat at the hospital, described Arafat’s condition as “very serious”. Abbas and three others are meeting with Chirac today.
Meanwhile, there are reports that France began a preliminary investigation into the large money orders within Suha’s accounts in Paris. Arafat’s finances are under the scrutiny of the International Monetary Fund and Office européen de lutte antifraude (OLAF) — European office for the fight against fraud — at least for now.
