rench authorities on Tuesday announced that they were opening a murder investigation into the death of Palestinian President Yasser Araft, who died in 2004. Arafat's family last month claimed that Arafat had been poisoned with the radioactive element polonium-210, and Swiss scientists claim they have evidence that traces of the element were found on Arafat's clothes. While medical records show that Arafat died from a massive stroke, many Palestinians continue to believe that he was killed by Israeli agents.
