Russian experts rule out radiation poisoning in Arafat death
MOSCOW (AFP) - Russian forensic experts studying the remains of Yasser Arafat on Thursday said the Palestinian leader died a natural death, ruling out radiation poisoning.
"We have completed all the studies," said the head of Russia's Federal Medical-Biological Agency (FMBA) Vladimir Uiba.
"The person died a natural death and not from radiation," Uiba was quoted as saying by the state RIA Novosti news agency.
Arafat's exhumed remains have been studied by Swiss, French and Russian experts.
