Clashes Erupt at Jerusalem Holy Site

Israeli police in riot gear storm the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem, after hundreds of Palestinians leaving Friday prayers threw stones at Jewish worshippers and security forces. Palestinians who had barricaded themselves inside the shrine have begun to leave peacefully following assurances there would be no raid. The site is holy to both Muslims and Jews.
