Thousands gather at the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem for the start of Orthodox Easter

Thousands of Orthodox Christians gathered at the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem for the annual event known as, “the miracle of the Holy Fire”. on the eve of the Orthodox Easter.

The source of the holy fire is a closely guarded secret but believers say the flame appears spontaneously from the tomb on the day before Easter to show that Jesus has not forgotten his followers. The flame is then sent to all Orthodox countries to arrive before Easter eve.
