Clinton holds meeting with Arafat


1 Pr-

WASHINGTON (AP) - Palestinian leader Yasser
Arafat said yesterday he would be willing to attend
another Middle East summit, with President Clinton
as host, provided it was well-prepared "to ensure its
"This is why I am here," Arafat said after a two-
hour meeting with Clinton at the White House and a
news conference in which he denounced Israel as the
cause of violence that has shattered already enfee-
bled peace talks.
"I would welcome any effort to convene another
summit, provided we prepare for it and ensure its
success," Arafat said later at a question-and-answer
session sponsored by the Council on Foreign Rela-
He stressed the agenda must include Jerusalem's
future and Palestinian refugees, issues that he said
cannot be deferred.
Implying Clinton would push the idea Sunday
when he meets at the White House with Israeli
Prime Minister Ehud Barak, the Palestinian leader
said "President Clinton has promised to exert maxi-
mum effort" in the time he has left in office.
A July summit at the president's Camp David
mountain retreat collapsed over Arafat's demand for
sovereignty over east Jerusalem. Barak offered some
local control to the Palestinians in parts of the Old
City, which was ruled by Jordan for 19 years until it
was captured by Israel in the 1967 Six-Day War and
united with the rest of tne city.
Arafat responded testily to queries about Palestin-

ian children being part of the confrontation with
Israel. Questioned about the children by an official
of the pro-Israel lobby, American-Israel Public
Affairs Committee, Arafat shouted: "Someone from
APACE should have apologized for killing Palestin-
ian children."
When the moderator, Frank Sense, of CNN, asked
whether Palestinian children should be withdrawn
from confrontation, Arafat stood up and sputtered: "I
can't permit you to speak to me in that language."
Earlier, after shaking hands with Clinton and
saluting him as he left, Arafat told reporters on the
White House's rain-swept. driveway that he reaf-
firmed his commitment to making peace, and the
outcome depends on the efforts exerted by Clinton.
The White House gave no indication that any
ground was gained toward a firm truce or the more
remote goal of reopening negotiations between the
Palestinians and Israelis.
In fact, administration officials abandoned the
phrase "peace process" and replaced it with "politi-

cal process."
A White House spokesman, P.J. Crowley, would
not say whether Clinton asked Arafat for a public
demand that Palestinian protesters stop their rock-
throwing campaign against Israelis.
But, Crowley said, "Clear statements by both lead-
ers can only help."
"We continue to be frustrated," Crowley told
Arafat was defiant in his own exchange with
reporters earlier. Thrusting at Israel, he said: "I am
not the one who initiated the violence. I am not the
one who is attacking Israelis. My tanks are not sieg-
ing Israeli towns. I did not order my tanks, my air
force, my artillery, my heavy weapons, my navy." He
interrupted his interpreter to make sure his English
was conveyed as he wished.
"We are facing a very dangerous situation that is
really hindering the peace process," he said.
"We are a nation with one airplane, Arafat said as
he left.

Gunman surrenders after 17 hours
CONWAY, S.C. - A Virginia stockbroker accused of killing his former boss
surrendered yesterday after holing up in his parents' rural house and keeping
police at bay for more than 17 hours.
Joseph Ludlam walked out with his hands in the air shortly after police cu
power to the house at dusk, Horry County Police Chief Paul Goward said.
Ludlam was served a Virginia murder warrant before he was taken to t1a
Horry County jail. An extradition hearing was pending.
Ludlam allegedly walked into a First Union Securities office in Norfolk, Va.,
on Tuesday, fatally shot Timothy O'Shaughnessy and then fled in the other man's
Ludlam was fired a month ago, reportedly because of discrepancies in his
accounts and aggressive trading practices. A First Union spokesman has con-
firmed only that Ludlam was a former employee.
Police surrounded the ranch-style house late Wednesday after being tippe
that Ludlam was inside. Police said they did not know how long Ludlam had
been in the house before his parents, thinking he was asleep, sneaked out. It was
not immediately clear if they called authorities.
Ludlam refused to take police phone calls during the standoff but finally spo
with his brother and wife. At one point, he walked out the back door and fire
shotgun blast into the ground, Goward said.
