Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas looks on during a ceremony to mark the tenth anniversary of the death of late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat in the West Bank city of Ramallah on November 11, 2014. Arafat died in a military hospital near Paris on November 11, 2004 in circumstances that have never been clear and two years ago, Swiss experts who examined his personal effects reported finding "abnormal" levels of polonium, an extremely radioactive toxin, fuelling the widespread Palestinian belief that he was poisoned by Israel. The Jewish state has repeatedly denied any role in Arafat's death. Photo by Shadi Hatem
