Yasser Arafat`s widow calls his death a mystery
Valletta: The widow of Yasser Arafat says she sees a spiritual significance in the timing of her late husband`s exhumation, which came just two days before a UN vote on whether to recognise a Palestinian state.
Suha Arafat told a news agency today at her home in Malta that the exhumation to determine whether Arafat had been poisoned "was as if his soul was resurrecting" ahead of today`s vote in the General Assembly.
Mrs Arafat called the former Palestinian leader`s death in November 2004, a month after suddenly falling ill, "the most important mystery of the Middle East."
Arafat`s remains were exhumed in the West Bank on Tuesday in a renewed investigation into his death. Palestinian officials claim he was poisoned by Israel, which has denied the allegations.
