Arafat`s widow wants French probe into his death

The widow of Yasser Arafat is planning to file a legal complaint in France asking authorities to investigate the death of her husband.



Paris: The widow of Yasser Arafat is planning to file a legal complaint in France asking authorities to investigate the death of her husband.

Palestinian authorities gave final approval on Monday for the former Palestinian leader`s body to be exhumed and asked for an international investigation into his 2004 death in a French military hospital.

Arafat`s widow, Suha, recently gave Arab satellite TV channel Al-Jazeera her husband`s medical file and what she said were his belongings.

Switzerland`s Institute of Radiation Physics detected elevated traces of polonium-210 a rare and highly lethal substance on Arafat`s belongings but said the findings were inconclusive.

Lawyer Pierre-Olivier Sur said today Arafat`s widow hopes an investigation will "establish the exact circumstances of (Arafat`s) death."
