Two Killed In Jerusalem Shooting

At least two people have been killed, and a further six wounded, after a Palestinian man opened fire from his car, in the Israeli city of Jerusalem.

A pedestrian and a policeman have died after a Palestinian gunman opened fire from his car in an attack in Jerusalem, Israeli police say.

Six other people were wounded in the attack that began at Ammunition Hill.

The gunman fired at a tram stop, then drove off. He stopped after a police pursuit and opened fire again, killing a policeman before being shot dead.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the “very fast, very determined action of the Israeli police”.

The police said the attacker was a Palestinian from East Jerusalem.
