Rights group denounces the Palestinian Authority for the death of an activist | app

JERUSALEM (AP) — Amnesty International said Friday that the Palestinian Authority has not held its security forces responsible for the death of an activist in police custody a year ago.

The family of Nizar Banat, a prominent Palestinian Authority critic, says security forces stormed his residence in the middle of the night and beat him with metal batons. His death sparked weeks of protests against the PA, which rules parts of the Israeli-occupied West Bank, some of which have been violently dispersed.
