Omar Masoud, who is serving a life term in prison for the 1993 murder of a young Israeli lawyer, is up for release. Masoud, along with dozens of other long-term Palestinian prisoners, are being considered for release as part of U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry's attempt to restart Israeli-Palestinian talks after five years of diplomatic paralysis.
