Bethlehem (300)

D, R (reporting)


When we arrive the hall is filled with people waiting to get through the inspection.  Only three checking stations open; at one the soldier is standing with the door open speaking to a man wishing to pass.  The discussion lasted for five minutes; then he was given permission to enter.  It seems there was difficulty with his employer, but it was ironed out.

At 07:00 a policeman came out and let the large group enter after cursory inspection.
