Colin Powell told Yasser Arafat that the United States wants a full explanation about an arms cache Israel seized last week in the Red Sea. The U.S. secretary of state, speaking on the phone with the Palestinian Authority president, said he found the reports that Palestinians were involved with the weapons ship “deeply troubling,” according to a State Department spokesman. Arafat reportedly replied that the Palestinian Authority was not involved in the incident, and said he would fully investigate the matter.
