Woman demands prison transfer

SALFIT (Ma’an) -- A woman in Israeli detention ended her hunger strike on Wednesday, after prison officials said they would examine her request to be transferred to a different institution, where her sister remains in custody.

The Salfit Prisoners Center said lanan Abu Ghilmah had initially planned on a 21-day protest, but halted the hunger strike early when guards said they would look into her previously ignored requests.
