RAMALLAH (Ma'an) -- A group of men in Qalandiya refugee camp blocked a main road Thursday to protest the Palestinian Authority's continued detention of a political prisoner, witnesses told Ma'an.

Locals said that the protesters shut down the camp's central street - one that connects Ramallah to cities in the southern West Bank - and additionally closed entrances to the camp, burnt tires and threw stones at passersby.

The men were protesting the Palestinian Authority's detention of Rabee' Hamad, a man who was released from Israeli prison 8 months ago, locals said.

The PA is still detaining Hamad despite a court decision to release him, locals added.
