A senior official in the Arab League says Tunisia has called on Arab ministers to discuss the death of former Palestinian President, Yasser Arafat. It comes after new evidence suggests he may have died of polonium poisoning.

Palestinian Foreign Minister, Riad Al-Maliki, says Palestine welcomes the proposal and will confirm the exact date of the meeting. The Palestinian Authority agreed on Wednesday to exhume Arafat’s body after new allegations emerged that he may have been exposed to the radioactive element in 2004, the same substance found to have killed a former Russian spy in London in 2006.
