No barrier to enjoyment

Much hated West Bank wall used by restaurant in Bethlehem to screen World Cup matches.

    Israel's separation wall, twice the height of the former Berlin Wall and more than 750km-long, is a much hated barrier in the Palestinian West Bank.

    Now, a restaurant owner in the occupied Palestinian West Bank has come up with a unique way to please World Cup fans: he has been showing every match of the tournament on a section of the wall, transforming it into a giant screen.

    Al Jazeera's Bernard Smith reports from Bethlehem.
