|Alabama prison shuts off water to cells, hunger strike ends|
ATMORE, Ala. (AP) — The Alabama Department of Corrections says a hunger strike by inmates protesting solitary confinement has ended after authorities shut off the water to their prison cells.
Corrections spokesman Bob Horton told the Montgomery Advertiser on Thursday that the water was shut off so that Holman medical staff could monitor the inmates' water intake. He said the strike ended late Thursday.
