Preparations have begun in Ramallah for the exhumation of the body of former Palestinian president Yasser Arafat.

Debate continues to surround Arafat's death after an Al Jazeera documentary suggested his sudden illness was due to a radioactive poison.

Palestinian security officials have cordoned off his grave in Ramallah and a team of French and Swiss forensic experts is expected to begin investigations soon.
