The United Nations has called for an independent inquiry into the death of a Palestinian in Israeli custody, reported Al Jazeera.
The Palestinians also demanded an independent investigation in a letter to the UN Security Council, which said that Arafat Jaradat, who died at the weekend, could have been tortured.
UN Middle East peace envoy Robert Serry made the call for an investigation in a statement on Monday after talks with Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad on the Jaradat's death.
Palestinian officials say Arafat Jaradat died after being tortured. Israel said an autopsy, carried out with a Palestinian coroner present, was "inconclusive" and that injuries, such as broken ribs, could have been caused by efforts to revive him.
