Israeli soldiers remove West Bank outpost
Updated: 2004-03-31 14:09

Israeli soldiers dismantled a Jewish outpost near the West Bank city of Hebron on Wednesday, the first of a handful slated for removal ahead of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's visit to Washington.

The removal of unauthorized outposts -- some uninhabited -- is one of Israel's commitments under a U.S.-backed "road map" for peace with the Palestinians that has been stalled by violence and the failure of both sides to take promised steps.
