According to an investigative report by Australian television channel ABC, Ben Zygier, an Israeli with Australian citizenship who was held in complete isolation at Ayalon prison, committed suicide in his cell.

The affair has been under a gag order, and reports about it in Israeli media have been censored. (ABC)
