Stone-throwing Palestinians battled Israeli police in a refugee camp in East Jerusalem Friday as the top EU diplomat warned of a new wave of violence if peace efforts remain deadlocked.The camp descended into chaos Wednesday after one of its residents deliberately ran down two groups of pedestrians in Jerusalem, killing a border policeman and injuring another nine people before being shot dead.Occupied East Jerusalem has been engulfed by violence over the past four months, with clashes occurring on an almost daily basis in several Palestinian neighborhoods.Daniel Seidemann, an Israeli lawyer who tracks developments in East Jerusalem, told AFP that the last time such a punitive demolition was carried out was in April 2009 when the security forces razed the home of an East Jerusalem Palestinian who had killed three Israelis a year earlier.
