Sky News Reporting Arafat Brain Dead


UPDATE from Sky News 12:30PM EST:

General Christian Estripeau, a spokesman for the French military hospital where he is being treated said: "Mr Arafat has not died."

He added: "His clinical situation has become more complex."

Arafat's death would likely be short-term negative for the USD and mean higher prices for oil and gold until the Palestinian situation resolves itself.
