A group of 20 international activists tried to deliver food, water and medicine to people trapped inside the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. They forced their way through the barbed wire around Manger Square, marched to the church, and sat down in front of it. Israeli troops rushed at them and pulled them away.
