Jerusalem police bar Jews from Temple Mt. amid Hamas rampage

Several hundred Palestinians, most of them radical Hamas and Al Tahrir activists are barricaded in the Al Aqsa Mosque on Temple Mount, Jerusalem since early Wednesday. They have been pelting police with rocks and firebombs piled up inside the mosque overnight. So far, police units have not tried to break up the disturbance by storming the site, after barring access to the compound for Jewish Passover pilgrims. Clashes earlier spread to the Old City. This incident still ongoing is a recurrence of the disturbance staged by Muslims on Monday, Passover eve and on Jewish festivals in general.
