Palestinian police escort the body of Maysara Abu Hamdiyeh during his funeral in the West Bank city of Hebron, Thursday, April 4, 2013. Demonstrations first erupted across the West Bank on Tuesday over the death of a Palestinian prisoner who died from cancer. The 64-year-old prisoner, Hamdiyeh, was serving a life sentence for a 2002 foiled bombing of a busy Jerusalem cafe. After Abu Hamdiyeh died, the Palestinians blamed Israel for the death, saying he was not given proper medical care. Israel says the prisoner was treated by specialist doctors in hospital.
