Violence mars Jerusalem day

A Palestinian demonstrator is detained by Israeli policeman near Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem, on May 17, 2015. Tens of thousands of Jews marched Sunday through east Jerusalem's Muslim Quarter, sparking scuffles between Palestinians and the police. The controversial march celebrated Israel's 48th Jerusalem Day, marking the "reunification" of the city after Israel seized the Arab eastern part of the city during the 1967 Mideast War
