In the West Bank, everyone calls him "The Godfather". Munib al-Masri, 80, is not only the richest Palestinian in the Palestinian Territories; he is also one of the most influential. In his final years, he is obsessed by two goals: reconciling the Palestinians, and making peace with Israel. Our reporters met him and followed him on the road in the Middle East.
Eight years after his death, Yasser Arafat remains a hero for most Palestinians. FRANCE 24's reporters look at his legacy in the city of Ramallah, where the former Palestinian leader was - twice - laid to rest.
WORLD PAPERS, Tuesday 27th November: We kick off with a special report by The Guardian about a surprising "role reversal" in the DRC conflict; a Rwanda New Times editorial gives its opinion on how Kinshasa should deal with the violence; Israel’s Haaretz recounts "secret talks" between the US and Israel ahead of the Palestinian "non-member" state bid; and which countries are the "Good, the Bad and the Ugly" at the current climate change talks? The Guardian takes a look.
We go to Israel and Gaza, where a ceasefire has been agreed after the worse fighting there in four years. Next, Jordan sees fresh demonstrations demanding political and economic change. Finally, the body of former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat is exhumed to see if he really was poisoned to death.
