Palestinian youths have clashed with Israeli police who entered the al-Aqsa mosque complex in East Jerusalem.
The Palestinians are said to have barricaded themselves inside the mosque and thrown stones at police, who moved in to stop them.
Israeli media said the Palestinians had intended to disrupt visits by observant Jews to the Western Wall.
The mosque, one of Islam's holiest sites, is in the Temple Mount/Haram al-Sharif site also revered by Jews.
The police said a number of officers were injured. There were no immediate reports of any Palestinian casualties.

That kind of raid is always touchy-raiding a religious site, especially one as disputed as that one is. But don't throw stones at cops, or at devout Jews who come to the Wailing Wall to pray.
