Support grows for Palestinian hunger striker

Supporters of Khader Adnan, a Palestinian activist who has been on hunger strike since he was detained mid-December, have called for a worldwide solidarity hunger strike. Adnan is believed to be the leader of the Palestinian group ‘Islamic Jihad’ and is currently in administrative detention, a procedure that allows the Israeli military to hold prisoners indefinitely without charge or trial. The call for worldwide solidarity came after Amnesty International reported that Adnan’s life was in danger, as he continued his protest against his detention without trial or charge, his violent arrest and humiliating interrogation sessions.
