  • Description

    Several thousand people, including lightly armed Palestinian commandos in battle gear, marched through Beirut on Wednesday (13 November) to mark the opening of the Palestinian debate in the United Nations.

    All organisations affiliated with the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO) whose chief, Yasser Arafat, was addressing the General Assembly in New York, observed a holiday.

    PLO leaders called it an historic day, and Palestinian refugees, students and schoolchildren flocked to join the marchers as they headed towards the PLO offices in Beirut's fashionable quarter.
