Thousands trace Jesus' footsteps in Jerusalem

26 March 2016, 15:07

Jerusalem - Thousands of Catholics and Protestants are commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ by following the path in Jerusalem's Old City where, according to tradition, he walked on the way to the cross.

The Good Friday procession passes along the Way of the Cross, or Via Dolorosa, the route believed to have been walked by Jesus to his crucifixion.

Pilgrims from around the world - some with large wooden crosses on their backs - walked the 14 stations along the route, each marking an event that befell Jesus on his final journey.

The final stations are inside the Church of the Holy Sepulcher where many Christians believe Jesus was crucified and laid to rest before his resurrection on Easter Sunday.

Greek-Orthodox and Eastern Orthodox churches mark Easter Sunday on May 1.
