Israeli police enter Jerusalem's al-Aqsa mosque after clashes

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli police entered Jerusalem’s al-Aqsa mosque, the third-holiest shrine in Islam, on Friday after a violent confrontation with masked youths outside, Muslim authorities at the site said.

A police spokesman did not immediately confirm the rare entry into a site that has often been the scene of Israeli-Palestinian friction. Police said earlier that people suspected of lobbing fireworks and rocks at them were barricaded inside.
