The body of Turkey’s former President Turgut Ozal, who died in 1993, is set to be exhumed within the next two weeks because of suspicions that he may have been poisoned.

A team led by a senior prosecutor has visited the ex-leader’s grave in Istanbul.

He was believed to have died from heart failure but his family have long alleged foul play.
