Palestinian children burn Joseph's Tomb

Following the visit of 500 Jewish worshippers overnight Wednesday, Palestinian children threw burning tires into Joseph's Tomb

Palestinian school children enter Joseph's Tomb, where Jews believe the biblical Joseph is buried, near the West Bank city of Nablus some two hours after a fire was set there Thursday Oct. 16, 2003. Palestinian children burned the holy site earlier Thursday, which was nearly destroyed by Palestinians three years ago when fighting between Israelis and Palestinians erupted.
