Tirawi victim tells of torture

A Palestinian accused of collaboration who managed to flee from Hebron last week has accused Palestinian Authority General Intelligence chief Tawfik Tirawi's men of torturing him and many others suspected of working as "informers" for the Shin Bet.

The man, 32, is now hiding in an apartment in Jerusalem that was provided by the Defense Ministry. He is sharing the apartment together with two others who also managed to escape from Tirawi's prisons.
