A Palestinian flag is painted on the face of a girl during a protest in the West Bank village of Bilin, near Ramallah, on July 17, 2009 against Israel's controversial separation barrier. The barrier is made up of 400 kilometres (260 miles) of concrete walls, fences and closed roads, with 87 percent located inside the Israeli-occupied West Bank, including annexed east Jerusalem, according to UN figures.
