Camy Posted December 28, 2011 Report Share Posted December 28, 2011 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5RnVfXFd5MU Scuffles have broken out between rival groups of Greek Orthodox and Armenian clerics in a turf war at Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity.Bemused tourists looked on as about 100 priests fought with brooms while cleaning the church in preparation for Orthodox Christmas, on 7 January.Palestinian police armed with batons and shields broke up the clashes.Groups of priests have clashed before in the church, built on the spot where Christians believe Jesus was born."It was a trivial problem that... occurs every year," Bethlehem police Lt-Col Khaled al-Tamimi told Reuters."No one was arrested because all those involved were men of God," he said.http://www.bbc.co.uk...e-east-16347418 Quote Link to comment
