The first Palestinian prisoner in the deal to secure a sign of life from captive IDF soldier Gilad Schalit was released late Wednesday evening. Bara'a el-Malki, 15, was convicted of attempted manslaughter and was expected to finish her sentence by November. Malki returned to her parents' home in the Jilazoun refugee camp near Ramallah. According to the deal, 20 female Palestinian prisoners whose sentences were nearing completion will be released by Friday in return from a video of Gilad Schalit proving that he is alive and in good health, as well as containing an indication that it has been filmed recently.
