Israel arrests 7 suspects in violence at Jerusalem holy site

Israeli police say they have arrested seven Palestinians over suspected involvement in violence at Jerusalem's most sensitive holy site on Monday.


Spokeswoman Luba Samri said on Tuesday that the suspects were connected to Monday's riots in which Palestinians barricaded themselves inside a mosque at the site and then threw firebombs and rocks at officers outside during a major Jewish holiday.


Recent violence at the site has raised worldwide fears of widespread unrest.
