The body of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat will be exhumed on Tuesday, eight years after his death, in an investigation to establish whether he was murdered.

A court in France opened a murder enquiry in August into his death in Paris after a Swiss institute found high levels of radioactive material on his clothing, provided to them by his wife.
