Easter Sunday celebrated in Jerusalem, Bethlehem (NBC)

Worshippers gathered in Jerusalem’s old city to celebrate Easter Sunday.

They crammed into the Church of Holy Sepulcher, the site where Jesus is said to have been killed and resurrected.
The service was attended by scores of people from a variety of countries.

A service was also held in West Bank City of Bethlehem, in the Church of the Nativity, the place where Christian tradition says Jesus was born.

This year Easter is celebrated on the same day by both Catholic and Easter Orthodox worshippers.

It also coincides with Jewish Passover.
