Prosecutor: France closes Arafat death probe without charges

French judges investigating claims that Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat was murdered have closed the case without bringing any charges, his widow’s lawyer and a prosecutor said Wednesday. The three judges said there was “a lack of sufficient evidence” to continue the investigation, the prosecutor from the court in Nanterre near Paris told AFP. Francis Szpiner, lawyer for Arafat’s widow Suha, also announced the decision on Twitter.
