Police and Border Police were dispatched to Nablus Gate outside Jerusalem's old city Saturday afternoon to disrupt an anti-Denmark protest which took place there. Some 150 east Jerusalem youths were trying to burn the Danish flag in protest of cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad published in a Danish paper last September. Police forces used stun grenades after the youths pelted the forces with stones and refused to leave the area. No one was wounded, and two protesters were arrested.
