Holy Fire ceremony in Jerusalem

Clerics and the faithful from Eastern Orthodox churches took part in the annual Holy Fire ceremony inside Jerusalem's Holy Sepulcher church on Saturday. According to Christian Orthodox tradition, on Holy Saturday – the day before Easter – a fire appears spontaneously from what is believed to be Jesus' tomb, as a reminder to followers that he has not forgotten them. Security was tight at the site where Christian tradition says Jesus Christ was crucified, buried and resurrected.
