Arafat Exhumation Painful but Necessary, Says Widow

Former Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat's widow said on Thursday that next week's exhumation of her husband is "very painful" but also necessary because of suspicions Israel poisoned him.

"It is very painful. It is a shock, and it is not easy for myself or my daughter," Suha Arafat told AFP in Ramallah.
