Stone throwers face 20 years in Israeli jail

Government takes first step in changing criminal code to make stone-throwing punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

    The Israeli government has taken the first step in changing its criminal code, to make stone-throwing punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

    It is the latest step in Israel's "zero tolerance" policy against Palestinian demonstrations.

    Political analysts, however, warned that Israel's policies, including the expansion of illegal settlements, could only ignite more anger among Palestinians.
