Arafat Jaradat to be buried, hunger strike extands.

Al-Quds (TAP) - The funeral of a Palestinian who died in Israeli custody on Saturday, fuelling riots, is due to take place in the West Bank city of Hebron.

Arafat Jaradat was "arrested a few days ago. He was killed during the investigation," the Palestinian Minister in charge of Prisoner Affairs Issa Qaraq told AFP.The father-of-two died at Meggido prison, from what the Israel Prison Service (IPS) said appeared to be a heart attack.

Palestinian officials, however, said an autopsy carried out by Israeli morticians showed he had suffered two broken ribs and had bruising.
