CCTV cameras to be installed for surveillance of Temple Mount


Although no cameras will be installed inside the Al-Aqsa mosque, live-streaming footage from a CCTV grid across the holy site will be monitored by both Israeli & Jordanian officials, to help maintain order on the Temple Mount, says a Jerusalem official.
