Prison Service preparing for release of prisoners in deal

The Prison Service Wednesday morning began preparing for the expected release of security prisoners as part of a prisoner exchange deal for kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Schalit that will see 1,027 Palestinians released from Israeli prisons.
Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich was expected to hold a meeting with senior Prison Service officials on preparations ahead of activities to release the Palestinian prisoners, Army Radio reported. Among the preparations being made were plans for dealing with possible unrest among security prisoners who discover that they are not on the list of prisoners to be released.
