Usage - "Despite earlier assurances to the Palestinian Christian community in Jerusalem of unhindered access to the Holy Sepulcher Church on the occasion of Easter celebrations, the Israeli police refused to allow such entry claiming they had orders to that effect," the statement said, adding that a `precarious' standoff ensued ending in an angry crowd pushing their way through."
