UN urges independent probe of Palestinian death

The UN political chief is calling for "an independent and transparent investigation" by Israeli authorities into the death of a Palestinian in their custody and is condemning a rocket attack from the Gaza strip reportedly fired to avenge that death.


Jeffrey Feltman told the Security Council Tuesday that the results of the probe into the death of Arafat Jaradat, 30, over the weekend should be made public as soon as possible. (AP)
