Conflict casts shadow on Bethlehem Christmas

Continuing unrest in occupied East Jerusalem and the recent death of a Palestinian minister has subdued festivities.

Officials at the Church of the Nativity are saying that the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine has cast a shadow over festivities this Christmas.

The holiday also comes at a time when the Christian population in Bethlehem is shrinking.
