The chief doctor treating PLO chieftain Yasser Arafat in Percy Military Hospital outside Paris said today that the arch-terrorist's condition has worsened and his coma has deepened. "The state of health of Mr. Arafat worsened during the night," said Dr. Christian Estripeau. "The comatose state that led to his admission into intensive care is deeper this morning. This marks a significant step towards an evolution which cannot yet be determined."

Some PA sources in Paris went even further late this afternoon, saying they are "counting the hours" until their leader's demise.

Coincidentally or not, four Palestinian Authority leaders, including Abu Mazen and Abu Ala, arrived in Paris to see Arafat today. It is assumed that Arafat's wife, Suha, will allow them in to his hospital room, despite her outburst against them yesterday.
