Issa Amro continues to remain in a Palestinian Authority detention center today. He has been in custody since he was arrested last Monday by PA security forces for a Facebook post. Yes, for a Facebook post! Yesterday, the PA extended his detention for at least another four days. Issa was beaten during interrogation. He is being kept in a tiny, filthy cell. No family, media, or even international diplomats, were allowed inside his court hearing yesterday.
