Arafish is floating upside down

Scratch one more terrorist.

75 year-old Yasser Arafat, terrorist and would-be Palistinian leader, died (finally) tonight in Paris.

Arafat had been in a coma since 3 November and later suffered a brain haemorrhage.

A hospital spokesman said that he died at 0330 (0230GMT) on Thursday.

The Palestinian leader was transferred to the military hospital in Clamart on 29 October, suffering from a blood disorder.

Tests showed he had a low count of blood platelets, which are needed for clotting, but doctors were unsure what caused the condition and made no official announcement about the cause of Arafat's illness.

Doctors were said to have ruled out cancer and poisoning.

Arafat will be buried in Rumallah on Friday, after ceremonies in Cairo.

My biggest complaint is that CBS broke in with five minutes left in tonight's episode of CSI:NY to talk about Arafish. And if you think I'm staying up three more hours to catch the west coast feed and find out whodunnit, you're nuts!
