Palestinian protesters have again clashed with Israeli riot police near the al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem.

Police say the protesters began throwing stones and firecrackers at a group of visitors, prompting the authorities to respond with stun grenades and rubber bullets.

The site is sensitive for political and religious reasons, being significant for both the Muslim and Jewish faiths.

Yolande Knell says tensions in the area are "extremely high".
