Israel decided not to let Palestinian Authority President Yasser Arafat attend Wednesday’s funeral of Leah Rabin, widow of Yitzhak Rabin, in the wake of shooting attacks in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. A source close to the prime minister was quoted by the Israeli daily Ha’aretz as saying it would not be appropriate for Arafat to attend.
