A team of forensic scientists confirms that Palestine Liberation Organization leader, Yasser Arafat, that was poisoned to death with polonium, a radioactive element best known for the murder of a Russian dissident in 2006.

The report claims that Arafat's killer was probably a member of his "inner circle," and the poison was likely administered by something Arafat drank. Members of the PLO have quickly blamed Israel for the assassination, which Israel has denied. "This is more soap opera than science," said a spokesman for Israel's Foreign Ministry.

"I'm so angry at what happened and I feel that I'm mourning him all over again," Suha Arafat, Yasser Arafat's widow, told reporters. "This was an act by cowards," she added.

High levels of Polonium-210 and Lead-210, a byproduct of Polonium-210's decay, were found in the autopsy and on Arafat's personal effects by the team investigating this case.  Arafat died in 2004.  The report was released by Al Jazeera.
