Muslims, Police Clash in Protests Over Jerusalem Holy Site

Palestinians in Jerusalem are protesting new security measures imposed by Israeli authorities at one of the city's holiest sites in what some are calling a "day of rage." Demonstrations were initially triggered by the installation of two metal detectors outside the complex, which is known to Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary and to Jews as the Temple Mount.

But this move has spurred tensions, as a Muslim leader called on his community to pray outside the site and Israeli border guards threw stun grenades at Palestinians pushing toward a police roadblock.
