Radio PA 16:30 September 4:
Response of the Secretary of the Presidency of the PA, Tayeb Abdul Rahim to the attack in Jerusalem:
"The President himself is following after the details along with all his advisors and senior people... We still haven't received information from the Israeli side regarding the incident. We are waiting for information."
"In my opinion, the one who carried out this incident, or the terrorist attack, doesn't want Mr. Albright coming to the region and doesn't want the diplomatic process to succeed..."
"As I said, I have many questions, many suspicions, since this action and its results achieve the goals of those who do not want the peace process to continue and do not want to fulfill the obligations of the interim stage and renew the negotiations on the permanent solution."
