Clashes Reported In West Bank After Prisoner Dies In Israeli Jail

Clashes continued Monday in the West Bank between Palestinian protesters and Israeli soldiers after a Palestinian prisoner died Saturday while in an Israeli jail. At least 6 Palestinians have been injured in the clashes throughout the West Bank.

The dead prisoner, Arafat Jaradat, was arrested last week for throwing stones at Israeli cars and Palestinian officials say Jaradat was tortured before his death. Israel said an autopsy was inconclusive.

UN officials are calling for an independent and transparent investigation.
