A police chief in the north has ordered an internal investigation into the death of a Palestinian detainee at a Rosh Pina police station four days ago, Israel Radio reported late Tuesday.
According to the report, Brigadier General Danny Hadad has appointed an officer to investigate the Palestinian's death.
Police said border policemen had brought the man, Ali Abu-Rob, to the station for interrogation.
After a few hours, policemen found his body hanging from a tattered blanket. The officers say they believe Abu-Rob committed suicide.
Police told Israel Radio in response to the report that the man was not questioned and that border police were responsible for his investigation. Border police have said the matter would be probed.
Abu-Rob's family members were notified of his death at the police station on Tuesday.
