Swiss lab to test Yasser Arafat's remains for poison

A Swiss radiology lab said Friday it will test the remains of the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat for polonium poisoning after receiving the go-ahead from his widow.


The experts from the Lausanne University Hospital Centre, which also got the green light from the Palestinian Authority, will travel to the West Bank to take samples from the body, a spokesman for the lab said. (AFP)
