The Jordan River site where Christ was baptized is now open again to pilgrims, after landmines were cleared from the area by the Israeli army. The mines had been there for some 40 years.

From the article:
Quote
"It is a very sensitive place politically and religiously and is of importance to both Christians and Jews," said Lt. Col. Ofer Mey-tal, of the department of Civil Administration, who oversees the project. Jewish tradition holds this also is where the ancient Israelites crossed into the Promised Land following their flight from Egypt.
