TAKING APARTHEID TO THE ‘BIG SCREEN’

Israel’s separation wall, twice the height of the former Berlin Wall and more than 750km-long, is a much hated barrier in the Palestinian West Bank.

Now, a restaurant owner in the occupied Palestinian West Bank has come up with unique way to please World Cup fans: he has been showing every match of the tournament on a section of the wall, transforming it into a giant screen.

Al Jazeera’s Bernard Smith reports from Bethlehem.
