A Palestinian boy poses for a photograph as he participates in a march to show solidarity with Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails, in Gaza City on June 18, 2014. Some 285 Palestinian prisoners are observing a mass hunger strike in protest against their being held without charge under a procedure called administrative detention. Of that number, 125 have been refusing food for more than six weeks, with 65 of them being treated in hospital, according to the Israeli Prisons Service. Photo by Mohammed Talatene
