Hamas: Schalit will `not see the light' until Palestinian prisoners freed

Captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit will "not see the light" until Palestinian prisoners are released in a prisoner exchange, Hamas official Mushir al-Masri said Friday. Egyptian-led talks over a prisoner swap have been bogged down. Hamas has demanded the release of over hundreds of prisoners. Israel has agreed to release some inmates, but has balked at some of those on Hamas' list. "Gilad will not see the light, will not see his mother, will not see his father, God willing, as long as our heroic prisoners do not see their families, in their houses," said Masri in a speech.
