Palestinians children walk in a street in the West Bank Balata refugee camp, near Nablus on May 11, 2011, as Palestinians mark the 63rd anniversary of the "Nakba" (catastrophe). Nakba means "catastrophe" in reference to the birth of the state of Israel 63 years ago in British-mandate Palestine, which led to the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians who either fled or were driven out of their homes during the 1948 war over Israel's creation.
