OCCUPIED JERUSALEM: Hundreds of Christian pilgrims are visiting the Holy Land to mark Palm Sunday, the day Jesus Christ made his triumphant return to Jerusalem.
The faithful are expected to march from the Mount of Olives to the holy city behind a white donkey, retracing Jesus' traditional route from 2,000 years ago.
Early Sunday, visitors walked down the cobblestone alleyways of the walled Old City carrying olive branches, palm fronds and crosses.
The day marks the start of Holy Week, which ends the following Sunday with Easter.
