KENNEDY: DID HE SURVIVE?
BRUSSELLS: A Belgian newspaper claims that President John Kennedy survived the assassination attempt in 1963.
The paper, Zondag Nieuws, says Kennedy was left a "human vegetable" after he was shot and did not die until earlier this year.
After the assassination bid, says the report, Kennedy was taken to a clinic on the Greek island Tenos, owned by Jacqueline Kennedy's second husband, Aristotle Onassis.
The paper claims Jacqueline's wedding to Onassis was a front to allow her to visit John Kennedy.
It says that after the shooting neither the general public, nor the Press ever saw Kennedy's body. It also quotes a Greek fisherman called Alexis, who says that from an island with a clear view of Tenos, he saw a man sitting alone in a wheelchair staring blankly out to sea every day.
The fisherman says that on April 16 the man was no longer there and he later saw the coffin lowered into the Aegean with Edward Kennedy and Jacqueline at the ceremony.
