Some 25 activists from the Campaign to Free Gilad Schalit demonstrated for the return of the captured soldier outside the Prime Minister's Residence in Jerusalem on Friday. Esther Wachsman, the mother of Nachshon Wachsman, who was kidnapped by Hamas militiamen in 1994 and executed during a failed rescue attempt a week later, was among the protesters. She called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to make a decision on the Schalit issue before it's too late. The demonstrators briefly blocked the road outside the residence.
