JERUSALEM (JTA) — Supermodel Naomi Campbell visited Bethlehem in honor of her birthday.
Campbell lit candles in the Church of the Nativity Tuesday, the day she turned 42, according to reports. She ate lamb and rice at a nearby restaurant accompanied by friends, Palestinian guards and her own security guards.
"I’m happy to be here. Weapons and war, greed and oil … I hope it all stops," she told the Palestinian Authority’s official television station, The Associated Press reported. "I care about health, about good vibrations, not destruction."
Other reporters in Bethlehem were not allowed to interview or photograph Campbell, the Palestinian Maan news service reported.
She reportedly also visited the Western Wall in Jerusalem.
