Heavy Security as Israel Reopens Site  10/31 06:11

   JERUSALEM (AP) -- Israel has reopened a contested Jerusalem holy site and 
deployed hundreds of security personnel amid rising tensions in the city.

   Muslim worshippers on Friday made their way through a welter of Israeli 
checkpoints to the site, known to Jews as the Temple Mount, and to Muslims as 
the Noble Sanctuary.

   Police said that Muslim men over the age of 50 and women of all ages could 
attend the weekly prayers.

   Israel closed the site after security forces shot and killed a Palestinian 
man suspected of attempting to assassinate a hard-line Jewish activist who 
advocates giving Jews greater access to the site.

   Israeli-American rabbi Yehuda Glick was shot three times late Wednesday but 
his condition is now said to be improving.

   Palestinians had condemned the closure as a "declaration of war."
