Palestinians clash with Israeli police in Jerusalem

A Reuters eyewitness said Palestinians threw stones and Molotov cocktails towards police near the Al-Aqsa Mosque complex, which sits atop the Old City plateau known to Muslims worldwide as al-Haram al-Sharif, or The Noble Sanctuary, and to Jews as Temple Mount.

Police also hurled stun grenades at a group of Palestinians marching through the grounds.

Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said stones were thrown at officers who were at one of the gates on standby.
