Mideast Israel Palestinians Easter
A Palestinian man sits on a statue in Manara Square, watching a Holy Fire procession a day before Orthodox Easter, in the West Bank city of Ramallah, Saturday, April 19, 2014. The "holy fire" was passed among worshippers outside the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in the Old City of Jerusalem and then taken to the Church of the Nativity in the West Bank town of Bethlehem, where tradition holds Jesus was born, and from there to other Christian communities in Israel and the West Bank.
