  • Description

    With tension high on Jordan's west bank a spontaneous demonstration by mainly young people erupted in the streets of the old city of jerusalem yesterday (September 25) against Egypt's President Nasser and King Hussein of Jordan.

    The demonstration which followed the end of traditional Friday prayers came as a surprise to the Israeli riot police who have been constantly on guard to prevent such outbursts. They were unable to stop the shouting youths from running out of the Temple Mount compound and into the narrow streets.

    Riot police stood by with water cannot but these were not used. after speaking to the demonstrators through a loud hailer the police were able to persuade them to remain within the walls of the old city.

    The police later withdrew and the demonstration continued. No clashes occurred.
