A Palestinian team that investigated Yasser Arafat's death and the late leader's nephew on Tuesday expressed reservations over a French report saying he died of natural causes.
"We need to study the report. We can't take a position on it until we've looked at it," said Tawfiq Tirawi, head of the Palestinian Authority's inquiry into the death.
Arafat's nephew Nasser al-Qidwa said that "until now, I haven't seen the report. But on principle, any new information about Arafat's death, especially from France, needs to corroborate the first medical report on his death in 2004."
