Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat has died.
The 75- year- old had been suffering from an undisclosed illness at a French military hospital near Paris for the past several days.
Arafat led the Palestinians for four decades, and forced his people's plight into the world spotlight.
But he was never able to achieve his lifelong quest for Palestinian statehood.
Drew Levinson joins us now from Jerusalem, with more on Arafat's death and what it may mean for peace efforts in the Middle East.

(MOS, from Ramallah, NO ID)

MOS: 1:10:49 he is the first one in the world to say that we need a country called Palestine
THE FLAG OVER ARAFATS RAMALLAH HEADQUARTERS IS NOW FLYING AT HALF STAFF.
THE PALESTINIAN LEADER DIED FROM AN UNDISCLOSED ILLNESS EARLY THIS MORNING IN A MILITARY HOSPITAL NEAR PARIS
DURING ARAFATS FINAL HOURS AN ISLAMIC CLERIC SAT AT HIS BESIDE READING PASSAGES FROM THE QURAN.
HIS BODY IS BEING TAKEN TO CAIRO FOR WHAT HAS BEEN TERMED AS A SEMI-STATE FUNERAL TOMORROW.
HELL THEN BE BURIED BACK IN RAMALLAH.
(STANDUP: )

now the question isin which direction do the israeli-palestinian relations go? israeli prime minister ariel sharon would not negotiate with arafatcalling him a terrorist, bent on the destruction of israel.
THE PARLIAMENT SPEAKER WILL SERVE AS INTERIM PRESIDENT OF THE PALESTINIAN AUTHORITY UNTIL ELECTIONS CAN BE HELD.
ALREADY FORMER PRIME MINISER MAHMOUD ABBAS HAS BEEN ELECTED HEAD OF THE PLO-PUTTING HIM IN PRIME POSITION TO BE THE PRESIDENT.

2:07:46 (Rem 3) now perhaps we have a new opportunity to start talks with Palestinians who really want peace

WITHOUT MENTION ARAFAT BY NAME- SHARON THIS MORNING SAID THIS COULD BE A HISTORIC TURNING POINT.
FEARING ARAFATS DEATH COULD TRIGGER VIOLENCE, THE ISRAELI MILITARY HAS SEALED OFF THE WEST BANK AND GAZA. ))
