Palestinians celebrate the release of 26 Palestinian militants from Israeli prisons at Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' headquarters in the West Bank town of Ramallah, West Bank, 30 October 2013. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said he would not sign any peace deal with Israel 'so long as there is one prisoner behind bars,' after Israel freed 26 Palestinian militants. Israel released 20 prisoners to the West Bank, five to Gaza and one to East Jerusalem early on 30 October as part of recently revived Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations. Photo by Issam Rimawi
