PLO aides expelled

Gaza - With a farewell from Yasser Arafat, two members of his entourage linked by Israel to the 1974 killing of 22 Israeli children left Gaza yesterday after the Prime Minister, Yitzhak Rabin, demanded their expulsion. Ahmed Tibi, an adviser to the PLO chief, said they were among three Palestinians on Israel's blacklist who crossed back to Egypt a day after entering Palestinian-ruled Gaza in Mr Arafat's motorcade.
