Some 40 activists demonstrating on Wednesday for Gilad Schalit's release, blocked the path of a bus carrying Palestinian prisoners' families on their way to the Nefaha  prison near Mitzpe Ramon, Israel Radio reported.

The activists said that as long as visitors are denied access to Schalit, Palestinians must not be allowed to visit family in Israeli jails. 

The police dispersed the crowd and allowed the bus to continue.
