Noam Shalit, father of captured Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, stands in front of a banner depicting his son outside a protest tent calling for his release, near the residence of Israel's Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in Jerusalem March 16, 2009. Olmert made a last-ditch effort on Monday to win the release of a captured Israeli soldier before he leaves office, giving envoys more time to make a deal with Hamas through Egyptian mediators.
