Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas delivers a speech to mark the eighth anniversary of the death of the late leader Yasser Arafat, in the West Bank city of Ramallah on November 11, 2012. Palestinians are coordinating with Russia, as well as Swiss and French experts, on the exhumation of Arafat who died in a French military hospital near Paris on November 11, 2004, and who French experts were unable to say what had killed him. Many Palestinians are convinced he was poisoned. In the background is an image of Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock in the al-Aqsa compound, Islam's third most holiest site. Photo by Issam Rimawi
