A team of French investigators have ruled out the possibility that deceased Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was poisoned, contrary to a previous report by Swiss scientists that said tests on his body showed "unexpected high activity" of polonium.
A Palestinian official says French and Swiss investigators will visit the West Bank to conduct parallel probes into the death of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
