Clashes continue at Jerusalem's al-Aqsa

Third street battle this week in Jerusalem's Old City between Israeli police and Palestinian protesters.

     
    Israeli police and hundreds of Muslim worshippers have continued to battle near the al-Aqsa mosque.

    In the third street battle this week, Israeli police on Friday fired tear gas at stone-throwing Palestinian protesters.

    The disputes are said to have been sparked by fears that far-right Israeli activists were planning to enter Muslim-controlled areas at the site which is known to Muslims as the Haram al-Shareef and to Jews as Temple Mount.
