    At least three Palestinians have been killed, according to local media, and hundreds more injured amid mass protests over new Israeli security measures at the al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

    At least 140 Palestinians have been injured in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank, according to the Palestinian Red Crescent.

    The protests come a week after a deadly gun battle at the occupied East Jerusalem compound, which triggered tensions.

    Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett reports from East Jerusalem.
