Clashes erupt at flashpoint Jerusalem site

Palestinian worshippers clashed with Israeli police at a highly sensitive Jerusalem holy site yesterday as an Israeli holiday coincided with the final days of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Muslim worshippers at the Al-Aqsa mosque compound were angered over Jewish visits to the site holy to both religions.

According to police, protesters barricaded themselves in the mosque, from where they threw chairs and stones at forces who “dispersed” them.
