Israel Reopens Jerusalem Holy Site

Israel has reopened the Jerusalem holy site after a deadly assault on Friday that saw two police officers killed.

On Sunday scores of Muslim worshippers visited the holy site after it was reopened.

It is a rarity that the site be closed at all.

Last weeks shooting have raised tensions in the area.

There was a notable increase in police presence on Sunday.

The Temple Mount, known to Muslims as the Haram esh-Sharif, a hill located in the Old City of Jerusalem, is one of the most important religious sites in the world.
