He was 75. Tayeb Abdel Rahim, a top Arafat aide, confirmed to The Associated Press that Arafat died at 4:30 am Paris time. He spoke to reporters at Arafat's headquarters in the West Bank city of Ramallah. Arafat, who had been a prisoner in his West Bank headquarters since 2002, died in a military hospital in a Paris suburb.

He was the first U.S. president to visit Guatemala since Lyndon Johnson nearly 30 years earlier.
