Eight years after his death, Yasser Arafat’s body may be exhumed

  • before In 2004, PLO leader Yasser Arafat died under bizarre circumstances, falling ill while under effective house arrest. Despite this, his wife would not allow for an autopsy to take place.
  • then Recently, Swiss researchers analyzed Arafat’s clothing, which had been in storage since his death, and found high levels of the radioactive isotope polonium; was he poisoned?
  • nowArafat’s wife, Suha, has now changed her tune, requesting an autopsy. Arafat’s body would have to be exhumed, which Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is willing to allow. source
