A woman looks through the window of a bus at Jewish settler children protesting against the removal of an unauthorised outpost in Hebron, in front of a police station in Jerusalem January 22, 2006. Israel is obliged to remove unauthorised outposts such as the one in Hebron under a U.S.-backed peace "road map", though removals were put on hold during the evacuation of Gaza. Some 400 settlers live in a community recognised by Israel at the centre of Hebron, a city of 130,000 Palestinians that is revered by Jews and Muslims as the place where they believe biblical patriarch Abraham is buried.
