Palestinian bakers have made an extra-large version of a local pastry, hoping to set a record and boost the reputation of this West Bank economic hub. Their kunafa - a mix of vermicelli, syrup and cheese - weighs 1,765 kilos (3,891 lbs) and is 74 meters (243 feet) long. The measurements were certified by the Palestinian Standards Institute, and organizers say they'll submit the results to the Guinness Book of World Records. The kunafa tray was laid out on a table in Nablus' main square Saturday and was devoured by tens of thousands of visitors drawn to the city.
