The BBC has received some 500 complaints about (Barbara) Plett's broadcast, which was broadcast on its Radio 4 program, "From Our Own Correspondent."I have never cried without warning. I can always feel it coming on. First, there's a tightness in my chest, my breathing becomes shallow, my chin starts to quiver, tears well up in my eyes, and then roll down my cheeks. I have gotten mad at stupidity... without warning.
In her report, Plett said: "When the helicopter carrying the frail old man(Arafat) rose above his ruined compound, I started to cry . . . without warning."
