Part of Dome of the Rock may collapse?

An Israeli minister has warned that part of a holy site in Jerusalem sacred to both Muslims and Jews may collapse beneath the weight of worshippers.

Thousands of Muslims are expected to make the pilgrimage to the al-Aqsa mosque, the third holiest site in Islam, during Ramadan.

But Israel's interior security minister says the the site must be strengthened or numbers of pilgrims must be limited.

Muslim authorities say it is an attempt to seize control of the mosque.
