Palestinians on 73-day hunger strike said to be gravely ill


RAMALLAH -- An activist says two Palestinians held in administrative detention by Israel are "between life and death" after 73 days on a hunger strike.


Qadoura Fares of the Palestinian Prisoners' Club said on Monday that 19-year-old Anas Shadid and 29-year-old Ahmad Abu Fara could "die at any minute."


The pair's lawyer, Ahlam Haddad, says the Israel Prison Authority unilaterally suspended the detention last month, but that her clients continued their hunger strike at an Israeli hospital, demanding release without conditions.


The Israel Prison Service declined comment.
