Arafat Exhumed

Hosted by

After his death eight years ago, Yasser Arafat was buried under several meters of concrete to make sure his remains could never be desecrated. Today, at his widow's request, they were exhumed as part of a French murder investigation. Samples were taken from Arafat's corpse today, as planned, but a military ceremony had to be cancelled. We get an update from correspondent Maher Abukhater, who's in Ramallah for the Los Angeles Times, and from Dan Ephron, Jerusalem Bureau Chief for Newsweek and the Daily Beast.
