Israeli cop, 7 Palestinians hurt in Temple Mount clashes

Police say a cop was hurt by rocks during clashes with Palestinian rioters on the Temple Mount.

In addition, police say that officers at the Old City site revered by Jews and Muslims arrested four masked youths “who were disrupting visits on the Temple Mount” by non-Muslims.

The Palestinian Red Crescent says it took seven Palestinians to an East Jerusalem hospital for treatment of injuries from sponge-tipped bullets, tear gas and beatings.

A police spokesman questioned by AFP says he was not aware of officers using force.
