The deaths of four Syrian refugees detained in Arsal last month were due to health complications and not violence, an official medical report concluded Monday.However, the events were questioned by human rights activists and members of the public who demanded an investigation into whether the Army had used torture against the detainees.The judicial source said that with the medical examiner's report Saqr might now close the investigation. However, Bassam Khawaja -- a researcher for Human Rights Watch who has pushed for a full, transparent investigation -- told The Daily Star that the military and judiciary should release the full report in order to show transparency.
