Growing Global Support for PA Bid at UN

Global support for the Palestinian Authority grew on Wednesday a day ahead of their bid to seek upgraded UN status. A growing number of European countries
said they would vote in favor of the motion, including Spain, Norway, Denmark and Switzerland, following France's lead on Tuesday.

"We're going to have a vast majority, more than two-thirds," senior PLO official Hanan Ashrawi told reporters in the West Bank town of Ramallah, saying they were confident of easily winning the simple majority needed for the upgrade.
