Remembering Yitzhak Rabin
More than 100,000 people have gathered in Tel Aviv to mark the seventh anniversary of the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.

The crowd listened to taped messages from Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Jordan's King Abdullah, and former US President Bill Clinton - who all paid tribute to Rabin's struggle to end the Arab-Israeli conflict.
