UK students launch hunger strike in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners.

A group of students in the University of Manchester have started a hunger strike to raise awareness about the abuses Palestinian prisoners are being subjected to in Israeli jails.
The hunger strike is an act of solidarity with a mass strike by some 2,000 Palestinian prisoners, who have been refusing food for two weeks to denounce the harsh conditions in Israeli jails.
Palestinian detainees complain that they have been subjected to assault and torture at Israeli prisons. Dubbed the Freedom and Dignity Strike, the ongoing action began on April 17. There are currently 6,500 Palestinians are in Israeli jails, according to rights group Addameer.
