Palestinian veiled women walk past closed shops during a general strike and day of mourning following the death of 63-year-old Palestinian prisoner Maisara Abu Hamdiyeh, who was suffering from throat cancer and died at Soroka hospital in the southern Israeli city of Beersheva earlier in the week, in the West Bank city of Nablus on April 3, 2013. The death of Hamdiyeh sparked outrage as the Palestinian leadership blamed Israel, saying officials had refused to grant him an early release. Photo by Nedal Eshtayah
