Report: Jordan renovating palace in Jerusalem

Aug. 14, 2011 11:34 A.M. (Updated: Aug. 14, 2011 8:22 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Jordan is renovating King Hussein's unfinished palace in Jerusalem, Hebrew-language media reported Sunday.

The Palestinian Authority Ministry of Waqf and Religious Affairs is carrying out the work at Jordan's request, the Israeli newspaper Maariv reported.

Maariv said the Jerusalem Municipality was not informed of the plans for the building, which is located in occupied East Jerusalem.

The late Jordanian King Hussein commissioned the palace in the 1960s, when the West Bank was under Jordanian control.

The monarch abandoned work on the palace when Israel occupied the West Bank including East Jerusalem in 1967.

According to Maariv, the deserted building is used by prostitutes and drug users.
