Palestinians protest prisoner's death in West Bank

A Palestinian protester uses a makeshift launcher to shoot fire crackers as another protester takes cover during clashes with Israeli soldiers and border policemen in the West Bank city of Hebron, Feb. 24. Israel on Sunday demanded the Palestinian Authority stem a surge of anti-Israeli protests ahead of U.S. President Barack Obama's visit to the region next month. The death in an Israeli jail of a Palestinian detainee on Saturday and an on-going hunger strike by four inmates have fueled tensions in the West Bank.
