Palestinian protesters throw stones towards Israeli policemen during clashes in the Arab east Jerusalem neighbourhood of Ras al-Amud February 28, 2014. Three Palestinian protesters were detained on Friday during the clashes after they threw stones towards Israeli policemen, a police spokesman said. Israeli security forces were on high alert on Friday ahead of prayers in the Old City of Jerusalem, placing an age limit on Palestinian men wanting to enter the Old City, allowing only males above the age of 50 to enter. The tension comes after an attempt earlier in the week by an Israeli right-wing member of parliament to introduce a bill that calls for the application of Israeli sovereignty over the al-Aqsa mosque compound, located in the Old City.

Residents are seen in the Villa 31 slum, which censuses show has grown 50 percent in the past four years to currently house some 40,000 people, near the 100-year-old railway station Retiro in the heart of Buenos Aires, February 9, 2014. A sharp currency devaluation in Argentina last month has worsened one of the world's highest inflation rates, threatening to unravel a generous social safety net at the heart of President Cristina Fernandez's economic policies. One in four Argentine families now rely on state welfare programs ranging from payouts for the unemployed to scholarships for poor high school students, as social spending boomed along with the economy over much of the past decade.
