Arab TV station AlJazeera broke a huge story this week. Based on their research over the last 9 months, Arafat might have been killed through Polonium poisioning. According to AlJazeera Arafat was in good health until October 12, 2004. On that day he suddenly fell ill. Traces of Polonium have been found on Arafat's belongings.

Now Arafats widow Suha Arafat is asking authorities to exhume Arafat. If the findings turn out true, than the hunt for Arafat's murder will start, potentially creating more turmoil in the middle east. More details on AlJazeera.
