    BARRIER only 1/3 completed!!!!,2933,148177,00.html

    Construction of the West Bank barrier began in 2002 and is one-third complete. Israel said it needed a shield against Palestinian suicide bombers and gunmen.

Last year, the world court said in a nonbinding opinion that the construction of the barrier is illegal and should stop.
