    In a separate incident, Israeli police said they arrested a Palestinian man, 18, near the al-Aqsa mosque in occupied East Jerusalem, after he lunged with a knife at a group of Israeli officers, Shmuel Ben-Ruby, a police spokesman said.

    There were no reported injuries in the Jerusalem incident. Tensions have been high in the city over the past few weeks as Palestinian worshippers fought to protect the historic site from Jewish nationalists.
