Was Yasser Arafat Poisoned? Remains of Palestinian Leader Exhumed in New Investigation
Former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's remains were exhumed today after his wife alleged that he may have been poisoned. A TV documentary stated that radioactive materials were found on some of Arafat's belongings, leading some to speculate that he could have been poisoned.
Arafat died in 2004 at age 75. His cause of death was officially listed as a stroke.
A team of scientists will be looking
to figure out whether poisoning by the deadly radioactive substance polonium was the underlying cause. The tests are expected to take three months, but could be inconclusive.
Many Palestinians have long accused Israel of poisoning Arafat. Israel has always denied that charge.
