In pictures: Jewish-Arab circus
Coming together

In northern Israel, Arab and Jewish children are finding common ground in an unusual way - at a youth circus.

Based in the town of Carmiel, the Galilee Circus aims to bring the two communities together by teaching friendship and co-operation through the performing arts.

There are 50 Arab and Jewish performers, from mainly Jewish Carmiel and Israeli Arab villages, who meet for classes twice a week in a community centre gymnasium.
