Hundreds have joined the parents of captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit as they head for Jerusalem to step up pressure on the government.
It is the second day of a 12-day journey which began at the family home and is expected to end outside the residence of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
He is reluctant to agree to the terms of a prisoner swap which would free Palestinians convicted of killing Israelis. Hamas say they plan to snatch more Israeli troops unless their prisoners are set free:
Shalit, now 23, was captured in June 2006 by Palestinian militants who had tunnelled from the Gaza Strip into Israel. There has been little contact with him since.
