GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The body of a Palestinian man was returned to Gaza late Monday after he died in an Egyptian prison.

Yousef Amro Abu Zayed, 51, was detained in Egypt because his visa had expired. He died three days ago but his family were unable to bring his body back until Tuesday.

The circumstances around his death are unclear, his family say, although there were no signs of torture.

Egyptian authorities have detained a number of Palestinians, claiming that their visas have expired.
