Jerusalem - Israeli police say a Jewish man died from wounds sustained when rocks were thrown at his car.

Spokesperson Luba Samri said the man was injured early on Monday as his vehicle was attacked while returning from a meal marking the Jewish new year.

She said the identity of the attackers is unknown but are probably from a nearby Arab neighbourhood.

Later, police and Palestinian stone throwers clashed for a second day in a row at Jerusalem's most sensitive holy site.

Samri said Palestinians threw rocks at officers who entered the area to ensure security and several were arrested.

The compound is holy to Jews as the Temple Mount, site of the two biblical Jewish temples.

Muslims revere it as the Noble Sanctuary where they believe the Prophet Muhammad ascended to heaven.
