Palestinians clash with Israeli soldiers after prisoner death

Protests over a prisoner's death turn violent. Palestinians clashed with Israeli police in Jerusalem and Hebron on Tuesday, over the death of a Palestinian inmate who died in prison of cancer. Outside the walls of Jerusalem's Old City, protests erupted into clashes with police, who responded with stun grenades and arrested three people. The protests were over 64-year old Maysara Abu Hamdeya, sentenced to life in prison for plotting a failed bomb attack on a Jerusalem café. His early release was initiated last week after doctors diagnosed his cancer as terminal. But he died in an Israeli hospital Tuesday before the release could be processed. In the West Bank city of Hebron, Abu Hamdeya's home town, supporters hurled stones and Molotov cocktails at Israeli soldiers, who fired back with tear gas grenades. No serious injuries were reported. Abu Hamdeya is the second Palestinian to die in Israeli custody this year. A 30 year-old man die
