Police in Jerusalem yesterday expelled three Jews from the Temple Mount because they began to pray and bow down at the spot. The incident occurred during a visit by a group of Temple Mount activists led by Yehuda Etzion, the leader of the Chai Vekayam movement. Etzion and two other members of the group were issued an order to keep away from the Temple Mount for the next 15 days. Visits by Jews to the Temple Mount resumed in July after a hiatus of about three years.
