French Judges Want to Come to Israel to Exhume Arafat’s Body


French judges investigating suspicions that Yasser Arafat was poisoned want to travel to Ramallah to exhume his body, his widow said. If the trip receives the go-ahead then "French scientific police could very soon take samples" from the body to further their investigations, Suha Arafat said in a statement released by her lawyer, reported by the French news agency AFP.
