The Bush Administration, expanding its talks with the Palestine Liberation Organization, has held two unannounced meetings with the second-in-command to Yasser Arafat, the State Department confirmed Thursday. U.S. officials said the purpose was to explore prospects for holding elections among the 1.7 million Palestinian Arabs who live under Israeli control on the West Bank and in the Gaza Strip. But the secret sessions in Tunis, Tunisia--one Monday and the other on an earlier occasion--nonetheless touched off a furor among supporters of Israel in Washington.

A senior official of the Palestine Liberation Organization warned that Arab extremists will launch a new campaign of terror if a proposed international conference on Middle East peace is not held. Salah Khalaf, deputy of PLO leader Yasser Arafat, said during a visit to China that an international conference is the "right channel" for a solution of the Arab-Israeli conflict. The conference idea is controversial, especially in Israel where the issue threatens to break up the coalition government.

The PLO has sentenced to death the bodyguard who gunned down Salah Khalaf, the group's second-in-command, on the eve of the Persian Gulf War, Palestinian sources said in Tunis. Hamza Abu Zid, who was handed over to the Palestine Liberation Organization by Tunisian authorities, is to be executed in Yemen sometime after the Muslim holy month of Ramadan ends in mid-April, the sources said. Zid, 30, who once worked for Abu Nidal, broke ranks with his former boss in the late 1980s and joined the PLO.

The shooting Sunday, blamed on an Israeli who had been dishonorably discharged from the army, set off riots in the Israeli-occupied territories. Yasser Arafat, chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization, urged U.N. Security Council action to protect Palestinians from massacres of Arabs, an aide said.

A week has passed since the U.S. ambassador to Tunisia delivered a note to the headquarters of the Palestine Liberation Organization demanding that its chairman, Yasser Arafat, condemn those responsible for last week's terrorist attack on the Israeli coast. The note also insisted that the factional leader who planned the raid, Abul Abbas, be removed from the PLO's executive committee.
