Israel reopened a holy site Sunday closed after an attack that killed two policemen, but new security measures including metal detectors and cameras triggered a dispute with Muslim authorities.
Crowds chanted "Allahu Akbar" (God is Greatest) as the visitors entered Jerusalem's Haram al-Sharif, known to Jews as the Temple Mount.
The holy site includes the Al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock.
