Huge stone block falls from Jerusalem's Western Wall, narrowly missing worshipper

Huge stone block falls from Jerusalem's Western Wall, narrowly missing worshipperJerusalem authorities restricted access to one of Judaism’s holiest sites on Monday after a massive stone block from the Western Wall fell to the ground below, narrowly missing a worshipper. Mayor Nir Barkat said in a statement “the stone, weighing 100 kilograms (220 pounds), fell close to a woman who was praying… without hitting her”. He described the fact that nobody was harmed in the incident as “a great miracle”. The statement said that Barkat visited the scene with the city engineer and safety officials, who declared the spot dangerous and closed it to the public pending further inspection. On Sunday, tens of thousands of Jewish worshippers thronged the main, gender-segregated Western Wall esplanade for annual prayers mourning the razing of the biblical-era temples.

The Western Wall, in Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem, is the holiest place at which Jews are allowed to pray. They believe it is what remains of a supporting wall of their biblical second temple, destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD. Immediately above it is the flashpoint shrine known to Jews as the Temple Mount, the holiest in Judaism, revered as the spot where the two biblical Jewish temples once stood. To Muslims it is the Haram al-Sharif compound, the third-holiest in Islam after Mecca and Medina, and home to the Al-Aqsa mosque and the Dome of the Rock
