A brawl broke out inside the Church of the Nativity as fully robed priest of rival Christian factions attacked each other with brooms and stones. Three different Christian groups share administration of the church and “any perceived encroachment on one group’s turf can set off vicious feuds” and apparently violence.

The incident had to be broken up by Palestinian police in riot gear. Four people were injured.
