Residents blocked several roads in north Lebanon Wednesday after news emerged that the health of a militia leader in prison had deteriorated.A security source told The Daily Star that Ziad Allouki, a former militia commander in the Tripoli neighborhood of Bab al-Tabbaneh, was taken from Roumieh prison to Hayat Hospital overnight after suffering fatigue."He began a hunger strike three days ago, which raised his blood pressure and blood sugar that caused him to faint," she told The Daily Star.She said Ziad and her other brother, Yehya, who is also in prison for involvement in the Tripoli clashes, were the family's only providers.A source close to the family told The Daily Star that Allouki's parents had been notified of their son's sudden health deterioration through Saad Masri, another militia commander who had fought gunbattles in Tripoli and is held at Roumieh prison.
