US reviews Mideast peace push amid tit-for-tat moves

AFP, JERUSALEM

Israeli Minister of Justice Tzipi Livni, Israel’s chief peace negotiator, told the Palestinians there had been a chance of a belated release of the final batch of prisoners.

However, she said this had been scuppered by the treaty move, a source close to the talks said.

About 1,500 Palestinians demonstrated on Friday outside Ofer military prison near Ramallah, rallied by the families of those who were to have been freed on March 29.

Eight protesters were wounded by gunfire from Israeli troops, medics said, two in serious condition.
