Shooting at the Western Wall


A security guard shot and critically wounded a Jewish youth, Friday morning, in the restrooms next to the Western Wall of the Temple in Jerusalem's Old City.

The security guard said he shot after he heard the youth yell Allahu Akbar and pull something out of his pocket. Muslim terrorists have been known to yell the same thing at the time of attacks. The case is under investigation.
