Christians Gather in Jerusalem for Good Friday

Ad Feedback

It's a holy day worldwide as Christians commemorate Good Friday, the day that Jesus died on the cross.

In Jerusalem, pilgrims are filling up cobblestone streets in the Old City as they remember the day of Jesus' death.

Black-robed nuns carrying wooden crosses moved past metal barriers erected by police. Dozens of tourists in matching red baseball hats using digital cameras were being ushered past the ancient Church of the Holy Sepulcher.

Normally, Catholics and Orthodox Christians follow different calendars for Easter week, but this year they coincided and the churches are commemorating Good Friday together.

For Jews in Jerusalem and around the world, this is the week to celebrate Passover.
