Abbas unveils Arafat mausoleum
Ramallah, November 11, 2007
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has unveiled a mausoleum to former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in the West Bank town of Ramallah.
Abbas laid a wreath in the tomb, in the compound where Arafat spent the last two years of his life.
The mausoleum complex cost $2 million (£1 million) to build and includes a mosque.
The commemoration is the first in a series of honours to mark the third anniversary of his death in a Paris hospital on 11 November 2004.
