Palestinian journalist ends hunger strikeA Palestinian activist and journalist has ended his three-month hunger strike and will be released in three months.

The family of Mohammad al-Qeeq, who worked for a Saudi media outlet, announced on Friday that he was ending his fast.
Fayha, Qeeq's wife, described the announcement as "a very big victory for us and for him".

Under a deal with Israel, he will remain in custody until May 21, but his so-called administrative detention will not be renewed after that.

Qeeq, 33, went without food after he was detained by Israeli forces and held without a trial or charge.

Qeeq launched his fast on November in protest against being held without charges. He was accused by Israel of being involved in activities with Hamas, the Palestinian group.
