Palestinian Hunger-Striker Says Snacking Video Fake

Palestinian hunger-strike leader Marwan Barghouti has denied the authenticity of a video purportedly showing him eating secretly in his prison cell, his lawyer said. Barghouti, along with 1,500 Palestinian prisoners held by Israel, launched a hunger strike on April 17, demanding better conditions, including family visits, Aljazeera reported. Last week, Israeli authorities, in an apparent attempt to discredit Barghouti, released a video that they said showed the 58-year-old having food. His lawyer Khader Shkirat said Barghouti had told him the video is not authentic. According to Shkirat, Barghouti said the cell featured in the video, with a bunk bed, is much nicer and cleaner than the rundown cell where he is being held, which has a single bed, smelly blanket and no pillow.
