JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel will reopen the Noble Sanctuary-Temple Mount compound on Sunday, a statement from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Saturday, after the holy site had been shut down over a deadly shooting attack.
Two Israeli policemen were shot dead by three Arab-Israeli gunmen on the outskirts of the compound on Friday. Its closure by police hours before Friday prayers prompted anger among Muslim worshippers and Arab states who called for one of the city's holiest sites to be reopened without delay.
