Pigrims locked out as Jerusalem holy site shut for second day

Pigrims locked out as Jerusalem holy site shut for second dayThe Jerusalem church built at what many consider the holiest site in Christianity remained closed for a second day Monday to protest Israeli tax measures and a proposed law, leaving hundreds of disappointed and perplexed pilgrims locked outside. Christian leaders took the rare step of closing the Church of the Holy Sepulchre on Sunday at noon in a bid to pressure Israeli authorities into abandoning the measures. Church officials said Monday it was not clear when it would reopen, depending on discussions with Christian leaders and Israeli authorities.
