Suha Arafat, widow of former PLO president Yasser Arafat, said Friday that her late husband was supposed to have been hospitalized in Tunisia after he lost consciousness prior to his death, Israel Radio reported. Arafat told the London-based pan-Arabic daily Asharq Alawsat that Fatah head Mahmoud Abbas, today Palestinian Authority Chairman, had ordered her husband to be hospitalized in Paris without consulting her. Arafat also said she had not ruled out the possibility that her husband had been poisoned, but said that investigations thus far had not indicated foul play.
