Construction work resumed Sunday on a ramp leading to the Mughrabi Gate in Jerusalem, despite objections from the Muslim world and two days of violent Palestinian protest, including a rock-throwing attack on a busload of Canadian tourists. Under heavy police guard, workmen returned to the site in the walled Old City after a break Saturday. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld reported no fresh incidents Sunday morning and said the repair work on the walkway, on the edge of the the Temple Mount, was scheduled to proceed throughout the day. He said police on duty in and around east Jerusalem would stay at an increased strength of around 2,000 officers and restrictions barring men under the age of 45 from praying at the sanctuary's Muslim holy sites would remain in force.
