Youth Arrested for Prostrating Self on Temple Mount

A 21-year-old resident of the Judean Jewish community of Kiryat Arba was detained for questioning, Tuesday morning, after he prostrated himself on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

The action violates guidelines for non-Muslim visitors to the holy site, who are not allowed to do anything that resembles praying.
