Palestinian Inmate Dies of Wounds
A Palestinian prisoner has died of wounds he suffered in a riot at a jail in southern Israel. Israeli prison officials said the man had been hit by what they called non-lethal objects fired by guards during Monday's riot. They did not disclose the precise devices used on security grounds. Palestinians say the guards provoked the riot by searching sleeping quarters at night, and then used unacceptable violent methods to regain control.
