Police are investigating a shooting at the Western Wall, Jerusalem, early Friday. A security guard shot dead a Jewish man, aged 46, because he said the man suddenly put his hand in his pocket and shouted Allah Akbar! The guard said he acted in the belief that the man was a Palestinian terrorist in disguise about to attack Jewish worshippers at the sensitive shrine. The guard was detained by the police for questioning.
