Britney Spears causes chaos in Jerusalem

Britney Spears' arrival in Israel has caused quite the commotion. It's the pop star's first visit to the country and a tour of the holy sites in Jerusalem on Sunday was described by Israeli news outlets as a veritable mob scene.

While Spears' security detail was substantial, the Western Wall is mainly accessible by foot and it was a challenge to make their way through mobs of fans, press, and onlookers (see video below).

There has also been some hubbub concerning a possible meeting with prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu. According to Ynet, Spears canceled a visit, but it was also reported that the meeting was never confirmed, which the PM's office seemed to acknowledge.

Ahead of the July 3 concert, Spears will visit with pediatric cancer patients.
