U.S. retail giant Walmart has withdrawn from sale an Israeli soldier's costume for children and a fake "Arab" nose ahead of Halloween, after an outcry from civil liberties groups that the outfits are offensive and racist.But the costumes were still being advertised Wednesday by other retailers, including Amazon and eBay, leading Arab and Muslim groups in America to demand their immediate withdrawal. Renewed violence in the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict has killed at least 60 Palestinians, nine Israelis and one Arab-Israeli in the last three weeks. The costumes were not listed on Walmart's website Wednesday.But Amazon is selling the soldier's costume for $29.99 .
