Israeli police and Palestinians clash for a second day in Jerusalem

Latest update : 2010-09-24

Clashes between Israeli forces and angry Palestinian protesters in east Jerusalem continued Thursday, a day after a Jewish settlement guard shot dead a Palestinian.

AFP - Stone-throwing youths clashed with Israeli police in an Arab area of east Jerusalem on Thursday, an AFP journalist said, a day after violence was sparked when a Jewish settlement guard shot dead a Palestinian.
  
Police fired tear gas grenades and water cannon to disperse groups of youths hurling stones and burning tyres in the Issawiya district of the holy city.
  
Jerusalem police spokesman Shmulik Ben Rubi said there were no casualties or arrests, adding that it was now calm again, "apart from some sporadic clashes."
  
The fighting on Wednesday erupted when Arab residents of the Silwan neighbourhood stoned a security guard in his vehicle and he opened fire, police said.
  
Witnesses said another two Palestinians were wounded in the shooting, and several were injured later as police fired rubber bullets and tear gas at protesters in and around Silwan.
  
The violence came as negotiators sought to reach a compromise on the impending end of a partial settlement moratorium that threatens to torpedo Israeli-Palestinian peace talks relaunched earlier this month.
