LONDON (TAP) - Scientists at Switzerland's Institute of Radiation Physics said on Thursday they have found evidence that Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was deliberately poisoned with polonium though they don't know if it ultimately killed him.
In an October report published by The Lancet, eight scientists working at the Institute of Radiation Physics and University Center of Legal Medicine in Lausanne confirmed they found traces of polonium in separate tests on clothing used by Arafat which they said "support the possibility" he was poisoned.
No autopsy was carried out at the time, in line with his widow's request.His remains were exhumed in November 2012 and samples taken, partly to investigate whether he had been poisoned -- a suspicion that grew after the assassination of Russian ex-spy and Kremlin critic Alexander Litvinenko in 2006.In an October report published by The Lancet, eight scientists working at the Institute of Radiation Physics and University Centre of Legal Medicine in Lausanne confirmed they found traces of polonium in separate tests on clothing used by Arafat which they said "support the possibility" he was poisoned.
A team of experts, including from Lausanne University Hospital's Institute of Radiation Physics, opened Arafat's grave in the West Bank city of Ramallah last November, and took samples from his body to seek evidence of alleged poisoning.
