Mausoleum for Arafat unveiled

November 11, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas inaugurated a mausoleum built over Yasser Arafat's grave in Ramallah and vowed to press on with his predecessor's drive for a Palestinian state.

Abbas, who is preparing for a peace conference with Israel in the U.S., said he hoped Arafat's wish to be buried in Jerusalem would be realized, along with the Palestinians' dream of making East Jerusalem their capital.
