Remains returned to mausoleum after 10-hour process conducted by international experts to test for radioactive polonium.
Ramallah - Scientists have exhumed the remains of the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and gathered samples that will now be shipped overseas to test for radioactive polonium.
Workers began digging through Arafat’s concrete mausoleum around midnight on Tuesday at the muqataa, the Palestinian Authority headquarters, where Arafat is buried, in Ramallah, in the West Bank.
Three teams of international investigators arrived before dawn and collected samples from his body and the surrounding soil.
