Ceremony held for Palestinian bodies returned by Israel

The Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, has led a special ceremony in Ramallah, to remember the deaths of more than 90 Palestinians killed carrying out attacks against Israel.

The remains of the militants, who are considered to be martyrs by the Palestinians, were repatriated by Israel earlier on Thursday, as part of a deal to end a hunger strike by hundreds of Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli jails.

Jon Donnison reports from Ramallah.
