Jailed Moroccan journalist ready to end long hunger strike
The lawyer of a jailed Moroccan journalist, Soulaimane Raissouni, says his client is ready to suspend his 118 -day hunger strike, but that he must be taken to hospital.
Raissouni's health is said to have deteriorated sharply. He was detained more than a year ago, and convicted of indecent assault last month.
Raissouni denies the allegation. His supporters say it's part of a politically motivated defamation campaign.
He is one of a number of Moroccan journalists who've been prosecuted for alleged sex crimes.
