Human rights organization Amnesty International has requested Hamas leaders allow the International Red Cross visit Gilad Schalit in captivity, Israel Radio reported Tuesday.

Hamas officials responded, saying they recognize the rights of prisoners of war, only not for Gilad since a visit will expose his location.

Amnesty further responded explaining that prisoner of wars' rights should not be compromised in order to be used in political bargaining.
