Growing tension at Jerusalem holy site

There have been disturbances in some parts of Jerusalem and surrounding areas in the occupied West Bank after Israeli police staged a huge security operation to prevent rioting after Friday prayers.

The Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu insists there are no plans to change the rules at Jerusalem's al-Aqsa Mosque compound, or Temple Mount, that ban Jews from praying there.

Four people have now died in two separate attacks on pedestrians in Jerusalem in the past two weeks.
