  • Description

    Yasser Arafat, the Palestinian revolutionary leader, told reporters in Amman yesterday (Saturday, 10 October), that the recent bitter fighting in Jordan was an attempt at genocide, Arafat, who spoke through an interpreter, was giving his first press conference since the civil war in Jordan. King Hussein, he alleged, wanted to be rid of the Palestinians. And the other Arab states had condemned the fighting, he said, as an attempt to get rid of the Palestinians.

    Arafat, at his press conference, alleged that the strife in Jordan was planned by the American Central Intelligence Agency; and that because of this the whole of the western world bore some responsibility for the events in Jordan.
