100 Israelis protest Vatican role at holy site

Published: 05.12.14, 21:19 / Israel News

About 100 Israelis protested Monday against the government at a Jerusalem religious site they fear will be handed over to Vatican control when the pope visits in a few weeks. Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the demonstration ended peacefully.

 

The site is believed by Christians to be the place of the Last Supper, where Jesus dined with his disciples before he was arrested by the Romans. The room is above the traditional site of the tomb of the biblical Jewish King David. (AP)
