Driver wounds a dozen people in Jerusalem attack

Latest update : 2008-09-23

A driver rammed his car into a crowd in central Jerusalem, wounding a dozen people, before he was shot dead, Israeli police and medics say. At least one of the people injured is in a critical condition. Reports suggest the driver was Palestinian.

A car slammed into a crowd in central Jerusalem late on Monday, wounding 10 people in what police described as a "terrorist" attack, before the Arab driver was shot dead, an Israeli police spokesman and medics said.

 

One of those struck by the car was seriously injured, a spokesman for the Magen David Adom ambulance service said of the incident at Kikar Tzahal -- Israel Defence Forces Square -- which overlooks to the Old City of Jerusalem.
 
"A man in a vehicle struck a number of people in Kikar Tzahal," police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said. "We can confirm it was a terror attack. The man was shot and killed."
 
It was not immediately clear who shot the driver. One Israeli television report said he was killed by a bystander.
 
The area would have been busy on a warm evening with people going to the area's bars and restaurants in the heart of the Jewish western side of the city.
 
The attack revived memories of two previous incidents in Jerusalem this year when Palestinians driving construction vehicles have attacked Israelis.
