In pictures: The shooting at Temple Mount
Israeli police used tear gas and rubber-coated metal bullets to disperse Palestinians protesting against a tour of Temple Mount by the hard-line Israeli opposition leader, Ariel Sharon.

The tour was viewed as provocative by Palestinians because the area known to Muslims as Haram al-Sharif lies on disputed territory captured by Israel in the 1967 war.
