April 08, 2002|From Times Staff Reports

About 2,000 demonstrators waved signs and chanted "Arafat's a Terrorist!" at a raucous pro-Israel demonstration outside the federal building in West Los Angeles.

At one point, pro-Palestinian counterdemonstrators carrying Palestinian flags tussled with demonstrators, but police said there were no reports of major disturbances.

Passing cars honked as protesters sang songs and held signs with slogans such as "Arafat-Bin Laden" and "We Stand With Israel."
