RAMALLAH, West Bank - Investigators from France and Switzerland will conduct parallel probes into the death of Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat, Palestinian officials said Monday. His remains will be exhumed, at a date kept secret, to give each team a chance to draw samples to test for poisoning. The two teams are acting separately on behalf of Arafat's widow, Suha Arafat, and the Palestinian Authority, who each had misgivings about the other's investigation. The push to reexamine Arafat's 2004 death come after a Swiss lab's recent discovery of polonium-210, a deadly radioactive isotope, on clothes said to belong to the Palestinian leader.

In a gathering showdown with Yasir Arafat's wife, Palestinian leaders are to meet with French government officials and possibly doctors today to try to find out what is wrong with the critically ill Arafat. The hurried trip to Paris yesterday by Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia and the deputy chairman of the PLO, Mahmoud Abbas, is aimed at getting around the refusal of Arafat's wife, Suha, to divulge details of his condition. Yesterday, Suha Arafat, in a television interview, accused her husband's inner circle of trying to usurp Arafat's power and to "bury him alive.

RAMALLAH, West Bank - A team of Swiss investigators visited the West Bank grave of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat on Monday to determine how best to dig up remains and extract samples ahead of their exhumation this month, a Palestinian official said. The Swiss team, one of two groups set to conduct parallel probes into Arafat's 2004 death, spent an hour inspecting the tomb, located in a mausoleum outside Palestinian government headquarters in Ramallah. A Western diplomat, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing, said the exhumation would most likely take place Nov. 26. Tawfik Tirawi, the head of the Palestinian committee investigating the death, said Monday's visit was meant "to check the place" ahead of the exhumation.

RAMALLAH, West Bank - Medical files released for the first time Thursday portray Yasir Arafat as a robust 75-year-old whose sudden health crisis, a month before his mysterious 2004 death, was initially blamed on viral gastroenteritis. The treatment notes by Arafat's Arab doctors who cared for him at his West Bank compound before he was airlifted to France are part of a renewed push to find out what killed the Palestinian leader. For years, little was heard about official Palestinian efforts to uncover Arafat's cause of death.

PARIS - French prosecutors opened a murder inquiry into the death of Yasser Arafat on Tuesday, his widow's lawyer said, after she and a TV investigation raised new questions about whether the Palestinian leader was poisoned. Many in the Arab world have long suspected that Arafat was poisoned, and a Swiss lab's recent finding of elevated levels of polonium-210 - a rare and highly lethal radioactive substance - on Arafat's clothing has fed those claims. However, the Institute of Radiation Physics said that its findings were inconclusive and that only exhuming Arafat's remains could bring possible clarity.

Palestinian leaders rushed to Paris yesterday to check on the critically ill Yasser Arafat, but hospital officials said visiting rights were restricted - setting the stage for a showdown between the delegation and Arafat's wife. Early yesterday, Suha Arafat accused the leadership - including top lieutenants Ahmed Qureia and Mahmoud Abbas - of coming to the French capital with the sole intention of usurping her husband's role as head of the Palestinian Authority. "I tell you they are trying to bury Abu Ammar alive," she shouted, using Arafat's nom de guerre, in a furious phone call with Al-Jazeera television from the 75-year-old Arafat's bedside in a hospital here, southwest of Paris.

Israel said yesterday it had completed arrangements to bury Yasser Arafat in the Gaza Strip, not in Jerusalem as Palestinians wish, as doctors at a military hospital outside Paris fought to keep the 75-year-old Palestinian leader alive. Three longtime Arafat associates were to fly to the French capital today to be at his bedside. Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia and two Arafat deputies, Mahmoud Abbas and Nabil Shaath, have been trying to cobble together a unified Palestinian leadership since Arafat was airlifted to a French hospital nine days ago with a still-undisclosed ailment.

AS I HELPED my toddler get dressed the other day in a crisp white T-shirt imprinted with an American flag, I couldn't erase a heinous picture from my mind. It was an Associated Press photo taken Saturday in Berlin of a father and his little girl. He is an unidentified Palestinian demonstrator; she is riding on his shoulders with a giant poster of Yasser Arafat in the backdrop. The smiling child - no more than 4 or 5 years old - is dressed in a powder-blue sweat shirt. Maybe she picked it out herself, but what's wrapped around her waist had to be all daddy's doing.

WASHINGTON - A federal judge on Tuesday ordered tobacco companies to publish corrective statements that say they lied about the dangers of smoking and which disclose smoking's health effects, including the death on average of 1,200 people a day. U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler previously had said that she wanted the industry to pay for corrective statements in various types of advertisements. But Tuesday's ruling is the first time she's laid out what the statements will say. Each corrective ad is to be prefaced by a statement that a federal court has concluded that the defendant tobacco companies "deliberately deceived the American public about the health effects of smoking.

French doctors will not know what is ailing Yasir Arafat before Monday, a hospital spokesman said yesterday, hours after the Palestinian leader arrived here for treatment of a blood disorder that has left him weak and unable to eat. The Palestinian Authority's delegate in France, Leila Shahid, said Arafat was conscious and talking as he was taken by helicopter from a French military base to a military hospital in a Paris suburb. Arafat was not visible in television news footage of his arrival on the hospital roof, which showed a sheet-clad form being wheeled on a gurney surrounded by medical personnel.
