Arafat to be Exhumed

The body of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat is to be exhumed on Tuesday, the BBC reports.

His body is to undergo tests to find out whether his death in Paris in 2004 was caused by poisoning. Arafat's medical records say he had a stroke resulting from a blood disorder.

Daily Beast: "The move comes just four months after an Al Jazeera documentary revealed new Swiss findings of unusually high levels of the deadly radioactive isotope polonium-210 on Arafat's last personal effects. It is seen as a last-gasp effort to finally solve the mystery of his November 2004 death in France."
