RAMALLAH (Ma’an) -- The public employees union suspended work Sunday at 10:30 a.m. to mark the death of late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, an official said.

Moin Insawi said a festival honoring Arafat would be held at Palestine Technical College for girls, and he called on all nearby public sector employees to attend.

Sunday was the eight anniversary of Arafat's death from a mysterious illness.
