Israel To Force Feed Prisoners

Two hundred and eighty-five Palestinians prisoners are fasting in protest at their detention; 70 have already been transferred to Israeli hospitals because of deteriorating health. Many of them today marked their 49th day of fasting, and some of them have been striking since April 24. Ben Lynfield has written a news report for the most recent edition of the The Christian Science Monitor.
