Arafat's Remains Exhumed
Yasser Arafat was exhumed from his West Bank grave today so experts can seek clues to his death, the AP reports. The Palestinian leader died in Paris 2004 and France opened a murder investigation earlier this year amid reports that highly radioactive polonium was found on his personal effects. French, Swiss and Russian experts will test samples from Arafat's bones, though since polonium decomposes rapidly, his death may remain a mystery.
