Yasser Arafat, Palestinian leader, to be exhumed

The body of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat will be exhumed on Tuesday, according to Palestinian officials.

His body is to undergo tests to find out whether his death in Paris in 2004 was caused by poisoning.

Arafat's medical records say he had a stroke resulting from a blood disorder.
