Morocco: Prisoners Hunger Strike Ends

saad of The World from Rabat reports that some 30 prisoners, who have been on hunger strike for almost two months in Western Sahara, have agreed to take food again.

Most of the prisoners were arrested in the anti-Moroccan riots in May in the main Western Sahara town of Laayoune.
