US Tourist Killed In Israel Attacks

A US tourist has been killed, and several others injured, following a series of attacks, purportedly carried out by Palestinian attackers, in Israel.

An American tourist has been killed and several people wounded in a spate of attacks targeting Israelis near Tel Aviv and in Jerusalem, police say.

The American citizen was one of 10 people who were stabbed by an attacker in Jaffa, south of Tel Aviv. US Vice-President Joe Biden was at an event close by at the time of the attack.

Earlier, two Israeli police officers were shot and wounded in occupied East Jerusalem, while an ultra-Orthodox Jew was stabbed in Petah Tikva, near Tel Aviv.

Israeli police said the attackers in all three incidents were Palestinian, and had been killed.
