Al-Jazeera Video: Prisoner release for Shalit tape - 30 Sep 09

"Israel has agreed to release 20 Palestinian women in exchange for a recently recorded videotape of a captured soldier. The prisoner release and the handing-over of the videotape are set for Friday, according to reports.

Gilad Shalit has been held since 2006 when he was taken during a raid by Palestinian fighters on an Israeli army position close to the Gaza border.

Israel holds about 10,000 Palestinians, including dozens of women.

Sherine Tadros reports from Gaza."
