Forensic investigators have taken samples of Yasser Arafat's remains to test them for radioactive polonium.

Suha Arafat, the widow of the late Palestinian leader, maintains that she was never offered an autopsy for her husband's corpse, and that the body was swiftly flown back from France to Ramallah in the Palestinian West Bank for burial.

She joined Al Jazeera from Valletta, the capital of Malta.
