The Health Ministry on Sunday said the autopsy of Palestinian prisoner Arafat Jaradat, who died in an Israeli jail on Saturday, showed "no signs of external trauma."

In a statement, the ministry echoed the Palestinian account of the post mortum, saying that "two ribs were broken," but added that the broken bones may indicate resuscitation attempts.

Palestinian interpretations of the autopsy claim Jaradat died under Israeli torture.
