BEIJING, Nov. 12 (Xinhuanet) — Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas says Russia will take part in the investigation of the death of his predecessor Yasser Arafat. Russian investigators will be joining officials from France and Switzerland.

Abbas made the announcement at a memorial ceremony for Arafat in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Sunday. Abbas said all ensuing results will be released to the public.

Abdullah al-Basheer, the head of a Palestinian committee that is overseeing the investigation, said the Russian government will send two doctors to take part. Arafat died in 2004 at a French hospital from unknown reasons. In July, a report by the news network al-Jazeera said that a Swiss lab found significant traces of radioactive polonium on Arafat’s personal belongings.
