Background: Crown Prince and Prime Minister of Kuwait Shaikh Jaber Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber, opened the second International symposium on Palestine on Saturday. The five-day symposium, under the patronage of the Amir, has brought to Kuwait speakers from all over the world -- academics, politicians, journalists and other specialists.
In the few days before the opening of the symposium, the struggle of the Palestinians in Jordan with the Government had again flared into violence. Guerrilla leader Yasser Arafat called on Arab heads of State to protect the Palestinians, and Fatah officials said Government forces had killed an unknown number of civilians.
