(JTA) — A Tunisian Jew who has been in prison for over a month is being denied access to kosher food, his family said.

Ilan Raccah, who is his 20s, has been held since July 10 at the prison of Mornaguia, a western suburb of the capital Tunis, the Kountrass news site reported Sunday. The report did not say precisely why Raccah was imprisoned except that he is suspected of inciting young men to set the car of a local businessman on fire.

The investigating judge assigned to the case allowed the family to bring kosher food to Raccah, whom they say adheres strictly to Orthodox Jewish law, or halachah. But the chief warden this weekend refused to take the kosher food from Raccah’s relatives, forcing him to fast, the family said.

Raccah has not eaten for more than two days and will continue to fast until he receives kosher food, his lawyer said in court.

Barring him from receiving the food, the lawyer told Kountrass, “is like a passing a death sentence on him.”

Hong Kong is the most expensive city in the world to rent a two-bedroom apartment, according to a report from Deutsche Bank.  Average rent prices in Wellington and Dublin increased over 20% since last year but Tokyo, Frankfurt, and Melbourne all had at least 9% decreases in rent. Average rent in New York City is about $800 lower than in the most expensive US city, San Francisco.

Housing costs likely eat up the biggest share of your paycheck, no matter where in the world you live.

But looking at the average rent for a two-bedroom apartment in the world’s largest cities, that number can range dramatically from about $300 in Bangalore, India, to more than $3,700 in Hong Kong, according to a new report from Deutsche Bank Market Research.

Hong Kong was the second most expensive city for housing last year but overtook San Francisco on this year’s report. Wellington jumped the most spots thanks to a 28% year-to-year change in apartment pricing and moved ahead five places to the 19th most expensive city for housing. Meanwhile, Melbourne and Frankfurt, Germany, dropped seven spots each, with the latter moving out of the top 24.

The report sources prices from Expatistan, a site that tracks cost-of-living expenses in over 200 countries, for “monthly rent for mid-range two-bedroom apartment” in nearly 50 cities.

Below, check out the 24 most expensive cities in the world to rent an apartment.

All prices are average and in US dollars.
