As we have mentioned earlier, the Palestinian engineers have dug up the tomb of late leader Yasser Arafat to take samples from his remains for poison tests. Attention surrounding this day and the event has been growing. For the very latest on the exhumation of Arafat’s body, we’re joined by our correspondent Stephanie Freid in Ramallah. She will also be joined by Diana Buttu, former spokesperson to Yasser Arafat.

Q1: Stephanie. What can you tell us about what's happening there?

Q2: Diana, you were close with the former Palestinian leader. Did he ever voice to you concerns someone may try to harm him?

Q3: As an attorney, but also an associate of Mr. Arafat, do you feel a sense of wanting to see justice served here if there was foul play?
