Red Cross fears for Palestinian hunger striker in Israel

The International Committee of the Red Cross says it fears for the life of a prominent Palestinian prisoner who has been on a hunger strike for 48 days. It’s the second marathon hunger strike for Khader Adnan, an activist in the militant Islamic Jihad group, who has been held without charge for almost a year. In a previous stint in administrative detention in 2012, Adnan went on a 66-day fast to press for his freedom, sparking weekslong hunger strikes by hundreds of Palestinian detainees.
