Palestinians carry pictures of the deputy in the Palestinian Council and the prisoner Marwan Barghouti during a rally marking the eleventh anniversary of his arrest outside the Palestinian Legislative Council in the West bank city of Ramallah on April 15, 2013. Barghouti is a Palestinian political figure and Fatah movement leader convicted and imprisoned for murder by an Israeli court. He is regarded as a leader of the First and Second Intifadas. Barghouti at one time supported the peace process, but later became disillusioned, and after 2000 went on to become a leader of the Al-Aqsa Intifada in the West Bank. Barghouti is said to have founded Tanzim. He has been called "the Palestinian Mandela". Photo by Issam Rimawi
