Israel on Wednesday confirmed it had imprisoned a mystery foreigner in solitary confinement on security grounds who had committed suicide, without revealing his identity or the charges against him.

"The Israel Prisons Service (IPS) held a prisoner who was an Israeli citizen and also held foreign citizenship. For security reasons the man was held under a false identity although his family was immediately informed of his arrest," a justice ministry statement said.
