Christians from across the world have gathered in the West Bank town of Bethlehem to mark Christmas Eve in the place they believe Jesus was born.

Celebrations culminated with midnight Mass at the Church of the Nativity.

In a homily, Latin Patriarch Fouad Twal, called on Jews, Muslims and Christians to “live together as equals with mutual respect”.

Thousands of pilgrims earlier crowded into Manger Square to watch a procession led by Patriarch Twal.
