People look at the forest fire that broke out near the outskirts of the Druze village of Osafia in the north of Israel December 2, 2010. A massive forest fire in northern Israel killed at least 40 people on Thursday, with many others injured, the Israeli rescue service said. Hundreds of people were evacuated from the areas near the Carmel Forest, including from a prison housing Palestinian inmates, as flames spread through the countryside in one of the worst such fires that Israel has suffered in years.
