Jerusalem park threatens homes

Palestinians fear that plans to build tourist park could displace hundreds of them.

    Hundreds of Palestinians could be displaced if Jerusalem authorities carry out a plan to turn the neighborhood of Al Bustan into a tourist park. 

    The plan entails the demolition of many Palestinian homes.

    But the mayor of the city says he will make sure houses are protected while developing the area.

    However, Palestinians in Al Bustan are sceptical of the assurance.
