Yigal Amir denied fertilization; refuses food

Yigal Amir refused to receive another meal on Thursday, his sixth meal in several days, in protest of the delay in his fertilization treatments, which he had planned to undergo with wife Larisa Trimbubler. The treatments were withheld due to a petition rendered by several members of Knesset. After being warned that his "hunger strike" was a violation of prison regulations, he was stripped of his privileges, including phone and visitation rights.
