Group: Prisoner's fingers severed in Israeli jail

Dec. 29, 2012 12:04 P.M. (Updated: Dec. 30, 2012 8:37 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian jailed by Israel has filed a complaint after his fingers were severed during a cell inspection, he told a prisoners group on Saturday.

Khalid Muhammad Ahmad Khalawi, 30, told the prisoners association that he was trying to open a door in Rimon jail to allow a guard entry, when the prison official shoved the door back on his hand, severing the top of his index and middle fingers.

Khalawi's fingers were later reattached by prison doctors, but the prisoner complained he waited five hours before treatment.

Khalawi, from Duheisheh refugee camp in Bethlehem, has been in jail since 2002 and is serving a 13-year sentence.
