Video: Experts aim to reveal truth of Arafat's death

11-27-2012 13:41 BJT

The experts from the Switzerland University of Lausanne, who found the radioactive material on his personal belongings, will take part in the exhumation of the remains of Arafat. They say the testing this time will be difficult, but they will strive to ensure the results are accurate.

Dr. Francois Bochud, Director of Institute of Radiation Physics, said, "The purpose of exhumation is to take samples. We have some idea of what kind of samples will be taken. But we have to discuss with other experts doing the job.

After taking samples, we will test the dose of Polonium in the chemistry lab, just as Arafat’s personal belongings were tested. We hope the samples to be tested will be bones or other biological tissues, if they can be taken."
