U.S. troops move into Fallujah, while Arafat lies on death bed
    #3335489 - 11/09/04 01:37 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

troops move into Fallujah, while Arafat lies on death bed-

The attack on Fallujah, intended to disloge insurgents from one of their main centres, began Monday.

The Americans cut the city's electricity supply. Many residents did not flee, and they are now without running water and food, because most shops have closed.

U.S. forces, with tanks and Humvees, moved into the city from the northeastern Askari neighborhood and the northwestern Jolan neighborhood. "It's going well, it's a good day," said marine Maj. Clark Watson.


Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Ahmed Qorei and Palestine Liberation Organization Secretary-General Mahmoud Abbas will travel to Paris on Monday, said Nabil Shaath, the Palestinian foreign minister.

But in an emotional statement to the Arabic-language news network Al-Jazeera, Arafat's wife, Suha, said the delegation wanted "to bury him alive."

Suha Arafat told Palestinians that her husband's would-be "inheritors" were coming.

"I want the Palestinian people to be aware of the scope of this conspiracy. They want to bury him alive," she said.

There was no immediate reaction to her remarks from Palestinian officials.

Shaath said on CNN's "Late Edition" that the 75-year-old Palestinian leader's coma is "reversible."

"We do not know what is the reason for this coma and when will he come out of it," Shaath said.

He said Arafat's vital organs are "fine," and he has no damage to his brain, liver or other organ. "There is no regression, there is no deterioration in any of his vital organs, but he remains in a coma."

Arafat was sedated for certain medical procedures, "but it appears that he is still in that state of loss of full consciousness," Shaath said. "The monitors show that everything else is fine. The doctors feel that it is reversible."

Shaath said he did not speak directly to the doctors but spoke with Palestinian officials who did.

Access to Arafat is limited, and the hospital itself has said little since his arrival.

On Friday, Leila Shahid, the PLO representative in Paris, said Arafat's coma was initially induced by doctors.

Then Saturday, sources close to Palestinian leaders said Arafat was being kept in a coma to prevent him from moving and damaging inflamed vital organs.

Saturday night, Arafat's media adviser, Nabil Abu Rudainah, said Arafat was "not in a coma," adding that he was "in stable condition" and sleeping in the intensive care unit.

But Sunday, a source close to senior Palestinian officials said Arafat had been in a coma since Wednesday, and that it was not medically induced.

The source said Arafat is on a respirator, and that an MRI scan showed his brain functioning well. However, that same source said Arafat's death was only a matter of time.

The cause of Arafat's illness remains unclear.
