Former Palestinian prisoners enjoy first day of freedom

Hundreds of former Palestinian prisoners have been enjoying their first full day of freedom since being released in exchange for the captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

The young Israeli is also back at home after being held in Gaza by the Islamist movement Hamas for more than five years.

Jon Donnison reports from Gaza, where he spent the day with some of the Palestinians released from Israeli jails.
