    It was known as the House of Peace - a building Jewish settlers say they bought from a Palestinian in the city of Hebron. But then the deal went bad.

    Now violence has broken out after Israeli police tried to enforce a court order telling the settlers to leave the building.

    Clubs and tear gas were used to remove the settlers, prompting hours of running battles which left dozens of people hurt.
