Israel renews detention of prisoner on day of release

Jan. 5, 2013 9:28 P.M. (Updated: Jan. 6, 2013 5:14 P.M.)
RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- Israeli authorities renewed the administrative detention of a Palestinian prisoner on the day he was due to be released, a prisoners group said Saturday.

Rawan Muhammad Ammar told Ahrar prisoners group that her father was due to be released on Jan. 3. The family had decorated the home and prepared sweets for the guests, but found out that Israeli prison authorities had decided to renew his administrative detention.

Ammar, 56, was arrested on March 11, 2011, and has been imprisoned without trial ever since.
