Clashes have broken out in a district of East Jerusalem after the killing of a Palestinian by an Israeli security guard.

Police say the guard opened fire after his car was blocked and stoned by dozens of Palestinians in the Silwan area.

Two other Palestinians were wounded in the shooting.

Israel is promising a full investigation.

Silwan has been the scene of frequent clashes over its Jewish settler enclave.

Last month there was unrest when settlers reportedly tried to cross the courtyard of a mosque to reach an ancient spring.
