French Judges Conclude Inquiry into Death of Yasser Arafat


yasser-arafatJudges in France have concluded their investigation into the 2004 death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, it was reported on Tuesday.

French experts reexamining evidence had in March confirmed that Arafat’s death was not the result of poisoning.

The prosecutor for the Paris suburb of Nanterre said the experts found there was no foul play in Arafat’s death. The French findings matched those of a Russian team.

Arafat died at age 75 at the Percy de Clamart Hospital near Paris. His widow Suha lodged a complaint in Nanterre in 2012, claiming that her husband was assassinated, sparking an inquiry.
