Clashes erupt at al-Aqsa mosque

Israeli police fire tear gas at stone-throwing Palestinian protesters in Jerusalem.



    Israeli police have fired tear gas at Palestinian protesters in the latest clash between the two sides at Jerusalem's al-Aqsa mosque compound.

    Israeli police said they moved into the compound following Friday prayers after receiving reports that stones were being thrown at the Western Wall, one of Judaism's holiest sites.

    As Al Jazeera's Sherine Tadros reports, the clashes are linked to Palestinians' anger at what they see as Israel's attempts to lay claim to sacred Islamic sites.
