Years ago, Israeli settlers built a settlement on private Palestinian land outside the town of Ramallah. Late last year, an Israeli court ruled it must be vacated by March. Now residents and the government are fighting over when, whether and where the residents will go.
Rachel Corrie, an American student, went to the Gaza Strip in 2003 to protest Israel's destruction of Palestinian homes. She died in the protest. A court in Israel on Tuesday ruled that the driver of the bulldozer that ran her over was unable to see her and therefore isn't liable for her death.
In the contentious relationship between Israel and the Palestinians, prisoners in Israeli prisons play a major role. And they could prove to be both a stumbling block and an opportunity as the two sides consider restarting their peace process.
