Director of Lausanne University Hospital’s forenics centre Patrice Magnin (R) and Director of its Institute of Radiation Physics Francis Bochud (C) hold a news conference in Lausanne November 7, 2013. Swiss forensic experts conducted tests on the remains of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, whose widow Suha says he was poisoned by radioactive polonium. A team of experts, including from Lausanne University Hospital’s Institute of Radiation Physics, opened Arafat’s grave in the West Bank city of Ramallah last November, and took samples from his body to seek evidence of alleged poisoning. Arafat died in a French military hospital in 2004. REUTERS/Denis Balibouse (SWITZERLAND – Tags: POLITICS SCIENCE TECHNOLOGY)
