    Senior officials from the US and Israel are meeting at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem - the scene of more clashes between Israeli forces and Palestinian protesters on Sunday night.

     

    Muslim worshippers are furious at increased Israeli security measures at the compound which they say are an attempt to control the Muslim-administered site.

     

    Israel has denied such claims, but has begun considering alternatives amid escalating Muslim protests.
