Amid tight security Yasser Arafat has arrived at a military hospital at Clamart, south west of the French capital Paris. The Palestinian president’s wife Suha Arafat, who lives in France, has been accompanying him.

The medical centre is well known for treating blood and cancer cases, and it is thought it is best equipped to take care of the 75-year-old, who is suspected of having leukemia. Outside the hospital Palestinians and sympathisers gathered to wish him well.
