Christopher Visits Gaza

GAZA STRIP -- U.S. Secretary of State Warren Christopher took his Middle East peace tour to the Gaza Strip on Thursday, becoming the highest-ranking visitor to meet PLO chief Yasser Arafat there since the start of Palestinian rule in May.

Dressed in customary Arab headdress and olive-drab uniform, Arafat greeted his guest with a warm handshake at the entrance to the new Palestinian Broadcasting Corporation offices by the Mediterranean.
