A Palestinian prisoner who was wounded in rioting at an Israeli desert prison died early Tuesday, prompting Palestinian accusations that the man was abused by Israeli authorities and threats of revenge. The prisoner's death, along with an Israeli raid in the West Bank that killed two Palestinian militants, raised tensions at a time when the Israeli and Palestinian leaders are trying to move forward with preparations for a US-sponsored peace conference. The Israeli Prisons Service said the wounded man died overnight at an Israeli hospital, hours after he was hit by a "non-lethal weapon" fired by guards during Monday's riot at the Ketziot prison. The statement said the prison guards' lives were in danger when they opened fire. The prisons service did not elaborate on the cause of death.
