Israel lifts restrictions on Muslim prayer at Al-Aksa

Israel is to lift temporary restrictions on Muslim worship at Jerusalem's Al-AKsa mosque compound, imposed after the weekend killing of two Israelis nearby, police said Tuesday, according to AFP.

"So far the decision is to return to normal procedures, with no restrictions on entry of worshippers," spokeswoman Luba Samri said in a statement, warning the decision could change if security concerns dictated it. The easing is due to take effect with Wednesday's Muslim prayers at the site.
