Deportees to march against peace talks

Palestinian deportees said yesterday they would wear burial shrouds on a death march to Israeli lines designed to stop the resumption of Middle East peace talks, Reuter reports from Marj al-Zohour.

Chanting 'Allahu Akbar' (God is Great), the 396 men voted to march tomorrow to Zemraya checkpoint, held by Israeli forces two miles south of the exiles' camp in a south Lebanon no man's land. The road was mined by Israeli troops and their allies shortly after the Palestinians were deported in December.
