    A Palestinian facing deportation has been granted a last-minute reprieve, claiming he had been tortured in an Israeli prison.

    Belal Amleh, 25, who has lived in Halifax since 2008, was due to be deported this week.

    His partner Suzanne Allott, a local pro-Palestinian activist, said Mr Amleh had been tortured and imprisoned for refusing to become an Israeli informer.

    She claims he was beaten with wooden batons and gun butts and had his feet broken.

    He was also allegedly threatened by Hamas after he refused to join their military activities. Ms Allott said Hamas had since threatened his family.

    Mr Amleh, from Beit Awla, near Hebron, lost his case for asylum last year. Last week he was arrested and sent to a detention centre in Middlesex.

    Labour MP Linda Riordan has written to Minister for Borders and Immigration Damian Green and the Court of Appeal granted a judicial reviews, hours before Mr Amleh's planned deportation.
