Israel scraps prison visit for isolated hunger strike leader

A lawyer says Israel canceled his scheduled prison visit with Palestinian hunger strike leader Marwan Barghouti who has been kept in isolation since the protest by hundreds of inmates began 24 days earlier.


Khader Shkirat says the Israel Prison Service initially informed him he could visit the 58-year-old Barghouti on Thursday but abruptly cancelled. He says he worries about his client who has been held in solitary confinement since April 17.
