JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli police detained a Palestinian militant leader on Monday for questioning over his travel to Jerusalem, a police spokeswoman said, a day after he was freed from prison in a deal ending an almost two-month-long hunger strike.

Khader Adnan of the Islamic Jihad faction was taken into custody near al-Aqsa mosque in the Old City in East Jerusalem, which Israel annexed as part of its capital - a move not recognised abroad - and where Palestinians seek independence.
