Elias Sanbar, Palestinian Ambassador to UNESCO
Issued on: Modified:
Swiss scientists say their initial research reveals that the late Palestinian leader, Yasser Arafat, had been poisoned by radioactive polonium. The Palestinian UNESCO representative, Elias Sanbar, tells Annette Young that if Arafat was poisoned, then the Palestinians believe the Israelis were responsible and probably used somebody on the Palestinian side who had close access to Arafat.
The noted writer and historian also talks about his recently published book on the history of Palestine.
