Desecration protest in Jerusalem

Demonstrators accuse Jerusalem of demolishing tombstones in the city's historic cemetery.

    Dozens of demonstrators in West Jerusalem have protested against the demolition of tombstones in the city's historic Muslim cemetery.

    The protesters say hundreds of graves were desecrated. But city officials say they simply did away with fake tombstones, placed there to deter developers.
