Former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat may have been poisoned with radioactive polonium, according to a Swiss forensic report obtained by al-Jazeera.

His medical records say he died in 2004 from a stroke resulting from a blood disorder, but his body was exhumed last year amid continuing claims he had been poisoned.

Yolande Knell reports.
