Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas called Sunday for an international inquiry to decide who was responsible for the death of Yasser Arafat after scientists said it was likely he was poisoned.

"We demand an international inquiry like the one France demanded for (the murder of Lebanon's former premier) Rafiq Hariri to discover who killed Yasser Arafat," Abbas told AFP in an exclusive interview in Ramallah.
