Senior Minister: Terrorist Release Could Topple Gov't

A release of security prisoners beyond those currently scheduled could break up the coalition, according to a senior minister cited, Sunday evening by Channel 2 Television. The minister said, "The government is in danger of breaking up if [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu frees terrorists."

Netanyahu expressed similar concerns, last week, to Secretary of State John Kerry of the United States.
