Easter 2014 Holy Sepulchre plaza Holy Saturday Old City Jerusalem

Before 2005, the plaza of the Holy Sepulchre church was open for pilgrims from around the world to congregate and wait for the Holy Fire. Increased restrictions continued this year, meaning that the plaza was empty. Many pilgrims and local Christians became frustrated and weary as they could not reach the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
