Palestinian newspapers on Sunday quoted Finance Minister Omar Abdel Razak as saying that the Palestinian government's financial crisis is worse than he thought, and that he doesn't know when the Palestinian Authority will be able to pay salaries to the 140,000 people on its payroll. Government workers support one-third of the 3.9 million Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza.
