Yasser Arafat 'Was Murdered With Polonium'

Forensic tests on former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat's corpse have revealed he was poisoned to death with radioactive polonium, his widow has claimed.
Suha Arafat said the results of the tests in Switzerland revealed a "real crime" and a "political assassination", adding: "It's scientifically proved that he didn't die a natural death and we have scientific proof that this man was killed."
A team of experts have been examining samples taken from Mr Arafat's body since his grave was opened in the West Bank city of Ramallah last November.
The exhumation came eight years after his death at a military hospital in a suburb of Paris, France.
A post mortem revealed he died from a massive stroke but doctors said they were unable to find the origin of his illness.
French prosecutors opened a murder investigation in August 2012, after traces of polonium-210 - the same radioactive substance that killed Russian spy Alexander Litvinkenko in 2006 - were reportedly found on some of Mr Arafat's belongings.
Professor David Barclay, a British forensic scientist who has seen the results of the Swiss tests, said the findings were a "smoking gun" for those who suspect he was murdered.
"In my opinion, it is absolutely certain that the cause of his illness was polonium poisoning," he said. "The levels present in him are sufficient to have caused death."
Professor Barclay said a miniscule dose of the deadly isotope may have been slipped into Mr Arafat's drink, food, eye drops or toothpaste.
The substance must have been made in a nuclear reactor, he claimed.
Mrs Arafat did not accuse any country or person for her husband's death and acknowledged that he had many enemies.
Many Palestinians have pointed the figure at Israel, although the Israeli government has denied any role in his death, noting that he was 75 years old and had an unhealthy lifestyle.
Some experts have also questioned whether Mr Arafat could have died of polonium poisoning, given that he did not lose all his hair and made a brief recovery during his illness.

NWN: Do we need 3 guessses as to the culprits ? Or maybe only the 1 guess?

Palestinians say Israel 'only suspect' in Arafat death

AFP - Palestinian investigators said on Friday that Israel is the "only suspect" in the death of president Yasser Arafat, after laboratory tests suggested he died from polonium poisoning.

"We say that Israel is the prime and only suspect in the case of Yasser Arafat's assassination, and we will continue to carry out a thorough investigation to find out and confirm all the details and all elements of the case," Palestinian inquiry chief Tawfiq Tirawi told a news conference in the West Bank city of Ramallah.

Tirawi said the Palestinian inquiry had studied the findings of Swiss scientists, released Wednesday, which "moderately" supported the notion that Arafat had been poisoned.

"This is the crime of the 21st century," Tirawi said. "The fundamental (goal) is to find out who is behind the liquidation of Yasser Arafat."

Palestinian officials on Thursday demanded an international inquiry into Arafat's "killing".

"The results prove Arafat was poisoned by polonium," said senior Palestine Liberation Organisation official Wasel Abu Yusef.

"This substance is owned by states, not people, meaning that the crime was committed by a state," he told AFP, calling for an "international committee" to probe the killing along the lines of the one that investigated the murder of Lebanon's Rafiq Hariri.

Speaking to reporters in Lausanne Thursday, the Swiss team said the test results neither confirmed nor denied that polonium was the actual source of his death, although they provided "moderate" backing for the idea he was poisoned by the rare and highly radioactive element.

They said the quantity of the deadly substance found on his remains pointed to the involvement of a third party.

"We can't say that polonium was the source of his death... nor can we rule it out," said Professor Francois Bochud of the Lausanne Institute of Applied Radiophysics.

Bochud's lab measured levels of polonium up to 20 times higher than it is used to detecting.

Arafat died in France on November 11, 2004 at the age of 75 after falling sick a month earlier, but doctors were unable to specify the cause of death and no post-mortem was carried out at the time.

In November 2012, his remains were exhumed and samples taken, partly to investigate whether he had been poisoned with polonium -- a suspicion that grew after the assassination in that manner of Russian ex-spy and Kremlin critic Alexander Litvinenko in London in 2006.

Since Arafat's death, Palestinian society has long given currency to the rumour that he was murdered, with Israel the party most often blamed.

But there has never been any proof.
