From NYTimes.com:

Palestinians in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Tuesday named a street after a U.S. activist who was crushed to death by an Israeli army bulldozer in a 2003 protest against house demolitions in Gaza.

The dedication ceremony was held on the seventh anniversary of Rachel Corrie’s death.
