The UN Security Council poised for an emergency session on Monday, as a rare joint statement from Russia, the US, European Union and UN called on both factions to show restraint.

The last few days have been marked by violent demonstrations in the area, riot police clashing with protesters throwing rocks and debris.

Palestinian health officials say three demonstrators were shot dead by Israeli security, a charge police say they're investigating.

The protests have centered on the recent installation of new metal detectors at one of the most important holy sites in Jerusalem, known as Temple Mount to Judaism, and Noble Sanctuary in Islam.
