Dozens of Palestinians were wounded in clashes with Israeli police that erupted Wednesday when Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque compound was opened to Jewish visitors, an AFP correspondent said.Police responded with stun grenades, Rosenfeld said, and closed the complex to Jewish visitors after a small number had toured the site.Rosenfeld said the situation on "Temple Mount," the Jewish term for the complex, was "calm again" and police had left the site.Non-Muslim visits to the Al-Aqsa complex are permitted and regulated by police, but Jews are not allowed to pray at the site. In Ramallah, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas hosted a small delegation of Israeli lawmakers to discuss the troubled peace efforts.
