Few persons, almost no children.
 
On our way in, a couple of soldiers in the first lane were engrossed in their private business and the turnstile stayed locked.  When they saw us, it was unlocked, then locked again for a long time.  When we returned, a group of people arrived.  All the lanes were closed.  People started moving from one lane to another, pressing the keys, but to no avail.  After a while, one lane was opened.  Security guards stood opposite the outside turnstile and checked documents.  A young man was called in and told he had crossed in a forbidden place, without documents.
