Yasser Arafat and the Radioactive Cigarette
Deborah Blum, Wired
Last week, the body of the late Palestinian leader Yassar Arafat was exhumed and tissue samples taken to be tested for signs of poisoning by the radioactive element polonium-210. As I wrote then, rumors have circulated since Arafat died in 2004 that this was not a natural death, that he was murdered by hostile agents from Israel.
TAGGED: smoking, poison, polonium, Yasser Arafat
