The Press and Journal (Inverness) - - WORLD NEWS -

Mus­lim prayers at a ma­jor Jerusalem shrine have ended peace­fully fol­low­ing ten­sions over se­cu­rity mea­sures by Is­raeli forces, although vi­o­lence con­tin­ued in the West Bank where a Pales­tinian was killed af­ter at­tack­ing sol­diers.

Is­raeli forces are on high alert fol­low­ing two weeks of vi­o­lence over the sa­cred site, holy to both Mus­lims and Jews. Ten­sions flared at the site af­ter Arab gun­men killed two po­lice of­fi­cers on July 14.
