Jordan has demanded that Israel stops building outside the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem's Old City, Israel Radio reported Thursday. Israel's ambassador in Amman, Yaakov Rosen, was summoned for a meeting with the head of Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh's bureau, and was presented with an official protest letter. Israel Radio quoted an unnamed Jordanian source as saying that Amman believes Israel is breaking international law by building in what he termed "occupied territory."
