Jerusalem's 'new Wailing Wall' causes tensions in the Old City
Israel has widened worshippers' access to a revered Jewish site in the heart of the Jerusalem Old City's Muslim Quarter. The move threatens to inflame tensions at one of the world's most contested religious sites. The small courtyard lies less than 100m from the Wailing Wall, one of Judaism's most sacred places; but its proximity to the Al Aqsa mosque, the third holiest site in Islam, makes the site sensitive to both religions.
