MOSCOW, December 26 (Itar-Tass) — The results of the examination of Yasser Arafat's remains will be available in late February, head of the Federal Medical and Biological Agency Vladimir Uiba told reporters on Wednesday.
The FMBA hopes to obtain the first results of the check of Arafat's remains for the presence of poisonous substances. "The work is continuing; it's necessary to build a model of the so-called nervous dose. It's a mathematical model to calculate whether the amount of the poisonous substance found on Arafat's clothes could have been lethal," he explained.
Specialists from Russia, Franse and Switzerland took part in exhuming the body of Palestine Liberation Organisation leader.
