Rayya, mother of Palestinian Fares Baroud (picture), who has been held prisoner by Israel for 22 years, celebrates after hearing news on the possible release of her son in her house at Shati refugee camp in Gaza City July 28, 2013. Baroud was expected to be among more than 100 Arab prisoners to be released as a step to renew stalled peace talks with the Palestinians ahead of plans to convene negotiators in Washington later this week. Israeli ministers have yet to vote on the releases. Photo by Ashraf Amra
