U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell had what he called a "useful and constructive" meeting Sunday with Yasser Arafat at the Palestinian leader's besieged West Bank headquarters. The meeting, which was expected to last one hour, went on for more than three hours. Powell said that he and Arafat discussed a variety of ideas, and that aides to both men would hold follow-up meetings on Monday, CNN's Andrea Koppel reported from Arafat's Ramallah compound. Powell has been in Israel since Thursday, trying to broker a cease-fire. He met with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon on Friday, but failed to agree on when Israel should end its West Bank military operations that have included sealing off Palestinian towns in an attempt to destroy what Israel calls "the Palestinian terrorist infrastructure." Powell and Sharon are expected to hold a second meeting Sunday.
