A hunger-striking Palestinian journalist will remain in jail despite warnings over his health, Israel's top court ruled on Wednesday.

The Supreme Court said it would not release Mohammed al-Qiq immediately but would follow his health on a daily basis.

Qiq has been on hunger strike for 63 days over his detention under Israel's administrative detention law and his organs are at risk of failure, his legal team says.
