RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Palestinian sources revealed that a young man from Ramallah died Monday evening in Jericho jail, which is run by Abbas's PA, as a result of sever torture meted to him inside the jail.

Shadi Muhammad Shahin, a Palestinian in his thirties from the Ramallah district died in Jericho jail, according to the sources.

The PA police claimed that Shahin died as a result of illness and not under torture and that an autopsy will be carried out to determine the cause of death.

Reasons behind the detention of Shahin are not clear yet, but the PA police say that he was detained pending prosecution in a case brought by the attorney general in Jericho.

It is, however, known that the Jericho jail is used mostly for detaining political prisoners and elements of the resistance from various resistance factions.

The death of Shahin has resulted in angry reactions in the town of his birth as citizens were angered and shocked at his death on the eve of the Muslim festival of Eid and the eve of national reconciliation talks which are slated to take place in Cairo.
