The churches located on the site of Christ’s Baptism are finally being cleared of landmines after sitting empty and abandoned for 50 years.
The Archbishop of Canterbury said: “It is fitting that work to remove the scars of war from the site of Christ's Baptism has come to our attention this Holy Week, as Christians contemplate Easter and the hope of the Resurrection. In a region troubled by division, clearing landmines at this Holy Site is a rare symbol of hope and reconciliation. It is truly inspiring to think that by Easter next year, pilgrims will be able to worship in these Churches once again in safety.”WATCH CBS NEWS REPORT
