Yasser Arafat's medical files indicate no sign that he was poisoned but are inconclusive, his nephew said Monday.  


At a news conference in Paris, Nasser al-Kidwa related the death of Arafat to his long confinement by Israel. "I believe the Israeli authorities are largely responsible for what happened," he said, according to The AP.  


Al-Kidwa added toxicology tests were conducted but "no poisons known to doctors were found." He also said that the files gave no clear diagnosis for the Palestinian president's death. (
