Turkish president's body to be exhumed for probe
Ankara (Turkey): Turkey's state-run Anadolu Agency says a chief prosecutor's office has ruled that the body of former President Turgut Ozal should be exhumed for a probe into his April 1993 death in office.
Monday's decision follows an official report in June that concluded that Ozal's death was suspicious.
Family members have long claimed that Ozal -- whose pro-Western policies helped modernise Turkey and gave the US-led coalition a strategic ally during the Persian Gulf War -- might have been poisoned.
Doctors at the time said Ozal, who underwent triple bypass surgery in 1987, died of heart failure. He was 66.
