Paleo hard boy dies in Israeli jail
A Palestinian prisoner died on Saturday in an Israeli jail, a prison spokeswoman said, with a Palestinian official charging he was killed during questioning and demanding an international probe.

“Arafat Jaradat... was arrested a few days ago. He was killed during the investigation,” the Palestinian minister in charge of prisoner affairs Issa Qaraqaa told AFP. “We demand the creation of an international commission of inquiry to probe the circumstances of his death."
Shot trying to escape?
Fell down elebenteen flights of stairs?
Acute cirrhosis?
Israel Prisons Service spokeswoman Sivan Weizman said Jaradat, a 30-year-old from the West Bank city of Hebron, died suddenly on Saturday at the Meggido detention centre in northern Israel.

“I can confirm that a Palestinian prisoner died today in the Meggido prison. It was probably acute cirrhosis a cardiac arrest. I don’t have additional details at the moment,” Weizman said.
Ah-ha! Acute cirrhosis! Just as I suspected!
News of his death comes a day after nearly 100 Palestinians were wounded in clashes with Israeli security forces during demonstrations in the West Bank to demand the release of the four hunger-strikers.

I'm surprised he lived that long with that name. Acute Alliteration, Dr. Quincy
