PALESTINIAN CARRY THE BODY OF JAMAL MOHAMED NAFEE DURING HIS FUNERAL IN RAMALLAH.
Palestinians carry the body of 33-year-old Jamal Mohamed Nafee during his funeral in Ramallah June 21, 2001. Nafee was killed by Israeli troops when he try to pass through a checkpoint near Ramallah yesterday. U.S. President George W. Bush telephoned Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Palestinian President Yasser Arafat late on Wednesday to urge them to honour the truce brokered by U.S. CIA chief George Tenet. Bush called on the two leaders to make an "all-out effort" to stop the continuing violence and announced he was sending U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell to the region next week to "secure efforts to preserve the ceasefire and build upon it".
