Arafat Exhumed For Poison Investigation


The body of former Palestinian Authority President Yasir Arafat was exhumed Tuesday to test whether he died of radioactive poisoning.

Samples were taken by a Palestinian doctor under the supervision of Swiss, Russian and French experts. The body then was reburied, according to reports.

Analysis of the samples reportedly will take several months. Many Palestinians continue to believe that Arafat was poisoned by Israel because he was an obstacle to peace. Israel has denied any involvement.
