Jerusalem: Israeli police say Palestinian protesters have clashed with policemen at one of the most sensitive holy sites.
The incident took place early Sunday at the Jerusalem compound known to Jews as the Temple Mount and to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary.

Police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby says some 150 Palestinians threw stones at a group of Jews visiting the site. Police dispersed the rioters using stun grenades, and two policemen were lightly injured.

Ben-Ruby says two protesters were also lightly injured before police restored order.

Deadly violence has erupted several times in the past at the compound holy to both Jews and Muslims.
