Friends of kidnapped troops protest outside PMO

As government ministers began the weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday morning, over a dozen friends of kidnapped IDF soldiers Ehud Golwasser, Eldad Regev and Gilad Shalit demonstrated in front of the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem. The protesters, calling for the government to work towards freeing their loved ones, carried signs that read "Olmert, a fence for wisdom is silence," and "Those who leak [information] don't get to speak [out against it]." Olmert met over the weekend with the Goldwasser and Regev families after it was released for publication last week that the prime minister had received a report shortly after the war began that the two soldiers were seriously wounded.
