Arafat's Sister Against Disinterment

Khadija Arafat, the sister of former Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat, expressed opposition, Thursday, to exhuming her brother's remains from the grave to examine if he died from radioactive poisoning. The possibility that the terrorist was poisoned was raised in a recent Al-Jazeera-backed examination of his clothing.

Responding to demands by Arafat's widow Suha, for another medical examination, Arafat's sister said, "I will let him rest in peace."
