Extensive reports by French scientists into Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat’s death have ruled out poisoning by radioactive polonium, his widow said Tuesday. The results contradict earlier findings by a Swiss lab, and mean it’s still unclear how Arafat died nine years ago.
Scientists from several countries have tried to determine whether polonium played a role in his death in a French military hospital in 2004. Palestinians have long suspected Israel of poisoning him, which Israel denies.
I’ll be interested to see if this report is covered as extensively as all the reports that the Israelis definitely poisoned Arafat to death.
