Nephew: ''No known poisons'' found in Arafat body

Published November 22nd, 2004 - 02:00 GMT

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. (albawaba.com)
