Following the signing of the Oslo I Accord, footage of PLO leader Yasser Arafat and Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin shaking hands in Washington is being broadcast on all major news stations. The scenes bring hope that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will come to an end. A controversial fighting game called "Mortal Kombat" has just been released on the SNES and the SEGA Genesis. The game has received criticism because of its blood and gore.
