A Palestinian committee set up to investigate the death of former leader Yasser Arafat has concluded that he did not die a natural death.

Speaking at a news conference in Ramallah, Palestinian officials said Israel is the "only suspect" in the death of Mr Arafat in 2004.

The claim follows a forensic report by Swiss scientists which concluded that Mr Arafat's remains contained high levels of radioactive polonium.

Israel has repeatedly denied any involvement in the death.
