RAMALLAH, West Bank, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas ordered that official documents bear a "State of Palestine" logo instead of one that says "Palestinian National Authority."

Abbas instructed government ministries, and missions abroad, to replace documents with the new logo in accordance with the U.N. recognition of Palestine as a non-member observer state, Israel Radio reported Sunday.
