RIP again: Tweeps get their digs in after Arafat exhumation11/27/2012
The exhumation of Yasser Arafat's body to determine whether the Palestinian leader had been poisoned before his death in 2004, and its hasty reburial only six hours later, happened Tuesday without fanfare. The event was shielded from prying eyes, but that doesn't mean tweeps weren't paying attention. Some were outraged, others alarmed, while some wondered about the regional ramifications should tests for radioactive polonium-210 prove positive. Others took the exhumation news more personally. "Not feeling hugely healthy myself," @AtheistM shared. Plans for a ceremony with military honors were scrapped after it was determined the body parts removed from his coffin didn't require such hoopla. [Source]
