Palestinians struggle to reclaim village

Protesters remind Israel about their right to return home, but court ruling might ban them from demonstrating.

    An Israeli court will decide on Tuesday whether a group of Palestinians can continue their protest at a destroyed village. The residents of Birem were forced out of their homes in 1948, but 65 years later, their fight to return is as defiant as ever.

    Al Jazeera's Stefanie Dekker reports from Birem, in northern Israel.
