Samaritan community mark Passover with mountain pilgrimage

A man and child, members of the Samaritan sect, rest during a traditional pilgrimage marking the holiday of Passover atop Mount Gerizim near the West Bank city of Nablus, early on the morning of May 11, 2012. The Samaritans, who trace their roots to the biblical Kingdom of Israel in what is now the northern occupied West Bank, observe religious practices similar to those of Judaism.
