Jerusalem in lockdown following violent protests

Israeli authorities have blocked access to certain zones in Old Jerusalem following days of violent protests and clashes between demonstrators and police.
By News Wires (text)

AP - Israeli police on Friday barred access to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem's Old City for Muslim men under the age of 50 over fears of fresh unrest, public radio said.

Police are concerned about more violent protests in annexed east Jerusalem after Friday prayers following clashes sparked when a Jewish settlement guard shot dead a Palestinian.

The move is in addition to an Israeli military decision to seal off the occupied West Bank for 10 days from Tuesday for the Jewish festival of Sukkot, known to Christians as the Feast of Tabernacles.

Such closures are routinely imposed during Jewish and Israeli national holidays when large numbers of people often gather in public places, heightening Israeli security concerns.
