Israeli border police surround a Palestinian woman prevented for being under age from crossing an Israeli checkpoint in the West Bank town of Bethlehem to attend prayers in the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem on the second Friday of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, Sept. 4, 2009. Israel loosened restrictions governing who can enter Jerusalem from the West Bank to allow Palestinian men over 50 and women over 45 to enter, as well as Palestinians with special permits. Under usual Israeli restrictions, only Palestinians with permits are allowed to enter Jerusalem from the West Bank.
