A group of colon cancer patients launched a hunger strike in front of the prime minister's residence in Jerusalem on Sunday. They were insisting that their medications be included in the 2006 health basket, as they claim was promised to them before the elections. They asserted they would remain at the protest site until the health basket is updated to include their medications, or until they die.
