More than 400 Islamist detainees on Oct. 29 ended a hunger strike that for some lasted more than a month, when authorities agreed to negotiate on their prison conditions, an association backing them announced. The strike came to an end after delegates from the government’s Consultative Council on Human Rights visited one prison at Sale on Friday and agreed to submit their grievances to the administration, said the head of the Ennassir support group, Abderrahim Mohtade.
