Yasser Arafat’s widow issued a plea for justice Thursday after scientists concluded the former Palestinian leader was likely deliberately poisoned by the radioactive substance polonium-210.

Suha Arafat said her husband’s death was a crime and that his successors “have to find the tools and pursue the legal case” in international courts.

Arafat died in 2004 in France, a month after falling ill at his Israeli-besieged West Bank compound.
