A convoy carries Palestinians prisoners who are to be exchanged for captured Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit, departing from Ktsiot prison camp in southern Israel's Negev desert, Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2011. Israeli officials say the last preparations have been made for a prisoner swap in which hundreds of Palestinians are to be traded for the Israeli soldier held in Gaza for more than five years.
