Prisoners' Day: Palestinians honour inmates in Israeli jails

Palestinians and supporters around the world mark April 17 as a day of solidarity with political prisoners in Israeli jails.

    Palestinians are marking Prisoners' Day to honour the thousands of men, women and children held as political prisoners in Israel.

    But the families of jailed Palestinians have been especially hard hit by a dispute over prisoners' payments, even as the US aid cut has worsened the financial crisis for many there.
