Israeli soldiers detain a Palestinian protester during clashes on January 15, 2010 in the village of Nabi Saleh Halmish near a Jewish settlement west of the West Bank city of Ramallah in protest against the expansion of the settlement on Palestinian territory that belongs to the village. Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas has refused US demands to relaunch peace talks suspended during last winter's Gaza war until Israel halts all settlement activity, including in mostly-Arab east Jerusalem.
