Palestine prisoner returns to hero's welcome

Family welcomes daughter home after her release as part of the Gilad Shalit prisoner swap deal with Israel.

    Samud Karaja, one of the hundreds of Palestinian prisoners released in the Gilad Shalit exchange agreement brokered with Israel, has arrived home to a hero's welcome.

    Two years ago, Karaja was 21-years old when an Israeli court sentenced her to 20 years in jail for stabbing an Israeli soldier at a checkpoint.

    On leaving prison, she was threatened with more jail time if she said anything to the media that would provoke attacks against Israel.
