PA spokesman denies arrest of former hunger-striker

Nov. 27, 2013 10:41 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 28, 2013 8:24 P.M.)
JENIN (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian Authority security official Wednesday denied reports that PA police had arrested former hunger-striker Khader Adnan.

PA Security Spokesman Adnan Dmeiri told Ma'an that Adnan had attempted to "obstruct" the work of security forces, but that he had not been arrested.

Adnan's relatives claimed that security forces had arrested him and his cousin, Farouk Moussa, at Moussa's house in Arraba near Jenin.

Security forces arrived to arrest Moussa when Adnan tried to stop them, resulting in both of their arrests, Adnan's relatives told Ma'an.

Adnan's 66-day hunger strike in an Israeli prison in 2012 inspired hundreds of prisoners to take on Israel's policy of holding detainees without charge.
