Report: Palestinian hunger-striker has signs of brain damage after MRI

Doctors treating Palestinian hunger-striker Muhammad Allan confirmed Wednesday that the suspected Islamic Jihad activist has brain damage after subjecting him to an MRI, according to Israel Radio.  According to the report, it was not initially clear whether the brain damage was permanent.
In a High Court hearing on a petition calling for Allan's release, the state said that it would release him if it was proven that he was suffering from permanent brain damage.
Allan, 31, has been on a hunger-strike for over 60-days following his detention by Israeli security forces who have yet to charge Allan with a crime.
