Ironic Juxtaposition

A new law in Israel has banned the use of underweight models in fashion photography and on catwalks. Supporters of the law hope that it will help to combat eating disorders in girls and women.

Meanwhile, in an Israeli prison, Hana Shalabi is reported to be close to death. Ms Shalabi has been held in "administrative detention" since February but has not been charged or convicted of any crime (and is neither an Israeli citizen nor resident). She is on hunger strike in protest against her imprisonment.
