UN urges swift solution on Palestinian prisoners
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is urging a swift solution to resolve the plight of Palestinian prisoners who are on hunger strike and held without charge.

 

UN spokesman Martin Nesirky said Tuesday that Ban is deeply concerned about the rapidly deteriorating condition of the hunger strikers, especially Samer Issawi. The UN chief said Palestinian detainees should be charged and face trial or be promptly released, Nesirky said. (AP)
