New report: Yasser Arafat wasn't poisoned

  • A team of French scientists recently concluded that former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat didn't die of poisoning but after a "generalized infection" instead.

    A former report from a Swiss team found heavy amounts of polonium in Arafat's body, which supported the theory that he was poisoned. His medical records, on the other hand, show that he died of a stroke. 

    Palestinians have believed for a long time that the leader died due to poisoning and an investigator even announced that he knew who the culprit was. "I promise that the next press conference will be the last, and will cast into the light of day everyone who perpetrated, took part in or conspired in the matter," he said.
