Yasser Arafat Dies...finally - News - Palestinian Leader Yasser Arafat Dies: "Under Palestinian law, the Parliament speaker, Rauhi Fattouh, is to become caretaker president until elections are held in 60 days. He's a virtual unknown."

His death marks what may be a very violent time for them as they have to figure out how to fill the power vacuum, and deal with what could be an impending peace settlement if they collectively choose well. The next sixty days will certainly be interesting.
