Arafat's widow calls his death a mystery
The widow of Yasser Arafat says she sees a spiritual significance in the timing of her late husband's exhumation, which came just two days before a UN vote on whether to recognize a Palestinian state.


Suha Arafat said on Thursday at her home in Malta that the exhumation to determine whether Arafat had been poisoned "was as if his soul was resurrecting" ahead of Thursday's vote. She called the former Palestinian leader's 2004 death "the most important mystery of the Middle East." (AP)
