Israel Police arrested on Monday two members of actor Leonardo DiCaprio's security team after they clashed with photographers during a visit to Jerusalem by the star and his Israeli girlfriend Bar Refaeli.

Israel Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said DiCaprio and supermodel Refaeli were taking a private tour of the Western Wall tunnels, next to the Western Wall which is Judaism's holiest site, in the Old City of Jerusalem.

Rosenfeld said the photographers waited outside the tunnels for the couple to emerge.

"Two of his [DiCaprio's] security guards were arrested by police after being involved in a fight that broke out," Rosenfeld said. "They are being questioned."

Covering their faces after the tour, DiCaprio and Refaeli were whisked away in a waiting white van.

The couple arrived in Israel earlier this week for a visit amid much fanfare by the Israeli media.

DiCaprio recently starred in Oscar winning crime drama "The Departed."
