Some 500 pro-Islamic Turks have held an anti-Israel protest in Istanbul over violence on Jerusalem's Temple Mount. The protesters on Monday marched toward the heavily guarded Israeli Consulate and burned an Israeli flag, chanting "We will protect Al-Aksa mosque." Muslims regard Al-Aksa as Islam's third-holiest site.
