Israeli activists take part in a march calling for the release of captive soldier Gilad Shalit in Jerusalem on Thursday. On June 27, Shalit's parents began a planned 12-day march to press for a prisoner swap from their home in northern Israel and have been accompanied by thousands daily along the way to their destination. They are headed to the Jerusalem residence of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Shalit, now 23, was captured by Palestinian militants who tunneled from the Gaza Strip into southern Israel in June 2006.
