Yasser Arafat's Health Is Deteriorating

The health of Palestinian leader, Yasser Arafat, seems to be deteriorating.

His family and doctors were summoned after Arafat collapsed last night and was unconscious for about ten minutes.

It's expected Arafat will be moved from his West Bank compound to a hospital near Jordan sometime today.

Yasser Arafat has been sick for the past two weeks, suffering from what Palestinian officials call a lengthy bout with the flu.

A Palestinian official says Arafat assigned a special committee to run Palestinian affairs while he recovers.
