Israeli schools cancel Jerusalem trip over tension

The Associated Press

JERUSALEM (AP) Schools in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv have postponed class trips to Jerusalem because of heightened tensions in the city.

The Tel Aviv Municipality said Sunday it honored a request by parents of 8th grade pupils to postpone a trip planned for most Tel Aviv schools this week because it included visits to areas where violence recently occurred.

Last week a Palestinian drove his car into a Jerusalem train station, killing a 3-month-old girl who was a U.S. citizen and wounding eight people. The municipality said pupils were scheduled to visit a nearby site.

In recent months, clashes have erupted at Jerusalem's most sensitive holy site between Palestinian stone throwers and Israeli police. Similar clashes erupted elsewhere in east Jerusalem.
