JERUSALEM: Tusener av pilegrimer står inne i Den hellige gravs kirke, bygget på det som ifølge tradisjonen er Golgata. Mange tror Jesus ble lagt her etter sin død, og den har derfor vært et viktig pilegrimsmål for kristne siden det 4. århundret.
Thousands of pilgrims hold candles as they surround the "Edicule," or empty tomb where, it is believed Jesus was buried, inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem in this Saturday, April 10, 1999, during the Christian Orthodox ceremony of the Holy Fire, which celebrates Christ's resurrection. In an unusual call, Roman Catholic officials say the Jewish state should intervene in opening a second door to the church where tradition says Jesus was buried, in time for an expected millenniumrush of pilgrims. Rival Christian sects have fiercely guarded their corners of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher for centuries, and the prospect of who controls the new door raises turf issues.
