Body of Palestinian Prisoner Analyzed, to Return to PA

Palestinian media reported that the body of Arafat Jaradat, whose death has sparked violent riots by Palestinian-Arabs in Jaradat's village and neighboring Hevron, body Jaradat, was analyzed in Israel with the participation of a Palestinian team and will be sent to the Palestinian territories within a few hours.

Jaradat died on Saturday in an Israeli jail from what prison authorities said appeared to have been cardiac arrest, AFP reported.

Protesters in his village and around Hevron on Sunday stoned Israeli security forces.

"In Hebron there are 100 Palestinians hurling rocks and rolling burning tires at security forces," an Israeli army spokeswoman told AFP, adding that a smaller group clashed with Israeli forces in the Halhul area, on the city's outskirts.
