Palestinian prisoners in Israel end hunger strike

Palestinian prisoners in Israeli jails have agreed to end a mass hunger strike, which has been going on for more than two months.

More than 1,500 Palestinians have been refusing food to demand an improvement in conditions.

Under a deal, Israel conditionally agreed not to renew detentions without charge, which had been a key grievance.

Jon Donnison reports from Jerusalem.
