Jerusalem's Church of the Holy Sepulchre, seen by many as the holiest site in Christianity, reopened today after a three-day closure to protest against Israeli tax measures and a proposed law.

The two men who act as keepers of the key of the church opened its large wooden doors at around 4:00 am, ending the protest that began on Sunday at noon.
