A Palestinian demonstrator attempts to stop a steamroller during a protest against the construction of Israel's separation barrier in the West Bank village of Al-Ramadin, south of Hebron, Thursday, Aug. 25, 2005. Israel says the barrier is needed for security, but Palestinians say Israel is effectively imposing a border that will swallow large chunks of the West Bank. When complete, the 425-mile (680-kms) barrier is expected to include about 8 percent of the West Bank.
