SYRIAN WOMAN AND DAUGHTER LIGHT CANDLES ON PALM SUNDAY.
A Syrian woman and her daughter light candles at the Greek Orthodox
church in Damascus on Palm Sunday on April 20, 2003. Syrian Churches
have decided to limit Easter and Palm Sunday celebrations in a show of
compassion with the suffering of fellow Arab Iraqis and Palestinians.
Syria was a staunch opponent of the U.S.-led war in Iraq.
