Bethlehem at Christmas: Mary's story

Mother of three Mary Anastas, who runs a sculpture shop in Bethlehem, fears for the safety of her children during times of violence between the Israelis and Palestinians.

Her two eldest children are studying at Birzeit University, north of Ramallah, but come home at weekends.

Young Palestinians regularly join protests that end up in confrontation with Israeli soldiers - close to Ramallah and Bethlehem.
