Palestinian inmate badly wounded in northern Israel prison fire

A Palestinian inmate was badly injured during a fire that was set by his cellmates in Shateh prison in northern Israel overnight Monday.

The fire was first noticed around midnight by prison guards who rushed to the scene and evacuated the inmates from the cell and put the fire out before it could spread further in the facility.

The investigation into the fire has just started, but the IPS said Tuesday they have ruled out the possibility that the fire spun out of control after two of the inmates attempted to torch the badly wounded cellmate.
