  • Religious affairs correspondent Robert Pigott gives a tour of Jerusalem in June 2008. Jews, Christians and Muslims are squeezed together in the narrow streets of the old city, doing business and worshipping side by side. Synagogues, mosques and churches can be found next to each other. The tour finishes at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and looks at the many different denominations of Christianity who claim the right to worship there. This BBC News clip is published as part of BBC News Online and was first broadcast on 29 June 2008. Please note this clip is only available in Flash.
