Is­rael lim­its shrine ac­cess

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - WORLD -

Is­rael barred ac­cess of Mus­lim men un­der 50 to Al-Aqsa Mosque com­pound on Fri­day and de­ployed 3,000 policemen near the site amid ex­pected protests over se­cu­rity mea­sures. The move came af­ter Is­rael de­cided not to re­move metal de­tec­tors in­stalled at the en­trances to the Haram al-Sharif com­pound, known to Jews as the Tem­ple Mount, fol­low­ing a shoot­ing at­tack nearby last week that killed two policemen.
