The Palestinian Authority Minister of Prisoner Affairs warned on Monday that the passage of the Gilad Schalit bill will hurt the chances of reaching a deal for Schalit's freedom.

A senior source at the UN Human Rights council commented, "we are hearing worrisome news coming from Jerusalem," according to Army Radio.

The source continued, "Israel can expect questions about the bill when it appears before a committee hearing in July."
