Tunisia issues arrest warrant for Arafat's widow
Tunisian authorities issue arrest warrant for ex-Palestinian leader Arafat's widow
By The Associated Press

TUNIS, Tunisia (AP) ' Tunisia has issued a warrant summoning the widow of deceased Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat over a corruption scandal.

The state news agency reported Monday that the warrant had been issued last week over Suha Arafat's role in a scandal involving former Tunisian dictator Zine El Abidine Ben Ali and his family.

Suha Arafat lived in Tunisia after Yasser Arafat's death in France in 2004, but left a few years later after falling out with the then-president's family.



Arafat's Palestinian Liberation Organization, or the PLO, was headquartered in the Tunisian capital for years following Israel's 1982 invasion of Lebanon.

Suha Arafat once served as secretary to the famed Palestinian leader, and they secretly married in 1990.
