Clashes, terror attack in Jerusalem

JERUSALEM -- A Palestinian man rammed his car into a crowded train platform in east Jerusalem on Wednesday, then attacked people with an iron bar and injured at least six in what authorities called a terror attack before he was shot dead by the police.

It was the second such attack in the past two weeks, and deepened already heightened tensions between Arabs and Jews in the city. Earlier Wednesday, Israeli police had dispersed dozens of masked Palestinians who threw rocks and firecrackers near a contested holy site in Jerusalem's Old City.
