  • Description

    Palestine Liberation Organisation leader Yasser Arafat continues to promote his "other side" ... that of popular diplomat instead of tough guerrilla leader ... in the Middle East.

    On Thursday (12 December) he joined Syrian President Hafez Al-Assad in a foundation stone dedication ceremony for a new educational city near Ghouta.

    The new co-educational city, with an area of nearly three quarters of a million square metres, will accommodate more than nine thousand students.

    The families of several of the "martyrs" to whom the city was dedicated, attended the ceremony.

    Since the acceptance of the P.L.O. in the United Nations, Mr. Arafat appears to have been concentrating on his changed image.
