Israeli archaeologists are inspecting the Kotel stone by stone in a new conservation effort at the holy site. Israeli Antiquities Authority archaeologist Jon Seligman said the work aims to "make sure stones don't fall on people praying below." On Sunday, workers on a platform cleaned stones near the top of the wall. The authority said work would likely continue for two months.
