Date set for Arafat exhumation over poisoning claim

Source: BBC News

The body of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat is to be exhumed on Tuesday, Palestinian officials say.

His body is to undergo tests to find out whether his death in Paris in 2004 was caused by poisoning.

Medical records say Arafat had a stroke but France began a murder inquiry in August after Swiss experts hired by a documentary crew found radioactive polonium-210 on his personal effects.

His tomb, in Ramallah in the West Bank, was sealed off earlier this month.

1. Shows to go that it's never too late for the Truth

This is why I never say it'll never happen.

I'm interested to see what the three countries come up with.

3. "The Truth?" According to who?

No.

This is just a publicity stunt for money by a corrupt widow of a totally corrupt Palestinian "leader."

Even that so called "evidence" cited in the OP shows signs of tampering and fakery.

2. I remember at the time there were people saying he had AIDS. I wonder who started that rumor.

4. They're still saying it

It was fueled by the argument over exhuming his body, which the PLO resisted.
