Police place age limit on Muslim male worshipers to Friday prayers at Temple Mount

Following a security assessment the police said on Thursday that it has decided to limit entry to prayers on Friday at Jerusalem's Temple Mount to male worshipers above the age of 50. No age limit was placed on Muslim female worshipers.
Police said the decision was made because of intelligence it had about the intention of Arab youths to disturb the peace at the site that has been a flashpoint for violence in the capital.
