The ancient town of Bethlehem is currently controlled by Palestinians in the West Bank.
Having a population of 25,000, the town boasts one of the holiest sites in Christianity, the place where Christians believe Jesus was born over 2,000 years ago.
More than 2 million tourists visit Bethlehem each year, but as our correspondent tells us, the town is struggling with high unemployment and empty hotel rooms.
