Priests scuffle at Bethlehem church

Rival clerics caught on camera fighting with brooms while cleaning one of Christianity's most sacred sites.

    Christmas is traditionally a time for putting disagreements aside.
     
    But peace and harmony were put aside at Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity in Palestine, one of Christianity's holiest sites.
     
    About 100 priests and monks battled on the site where Jesus is said to have been born.
