Muslim Cleric Probed Over 'Throwing Chairs at Jews' in Jerusalem

Israeli police question Jerusalem's most senior Muslim cleric on suspicion of disturbance and throwing chairs at Jews on Temple Mount.

Israeli police were questioning Jerusalem's most senior Muslim cleric on Wednesday for suspected involvement in a disturbance on the Temple Mount, a spokesman said.

Mufti of Jerusalem Mohammed Hussein was taken from his home by detectives and was being questioned at a police station "on suspicion of involvement in a disturbance that took place yesterday (Tuesday) on Temple Mount," police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said.

"Some chairs were thrown at a group of Jews on the Temple Mount," which Muslims refer to as Al-Haram Al-Sharif, Rosenfeld told the AFP news agency of the previous day's incident.

Hussein's detention comes on Jerusalem Day, when Israel marks the reunification of the city during the 1967 Six-Day War.

Thousands of Israelis are celebrating, holding marches and rallies throughout the city on Wednesday, and Rosenfeld said "thousands of police were being deployed in and around Jerusalem and the Old City in preparation for the annual events."
