Arafat's widow on husband's legacy

The legacy of the late Palestinian President Yasser Arafat will continue, his widow, Suha has told BBC HARDtalk in a rare broadcast interview.

"At the same time that Arab leaders have been killed by their people or put in prison their people, people are going to his [Yasser Arafat's] tomb and crying," she said.

Yasser Arafat died in a hospital in France in November 2004, weeks after falling ill at his compound in the West Bank city of Ramallah.
