JERUSALEM Israeli police shot dead a man who tried to stab one of them in East Jerusalem on Monday in what appeared to be the latest in a spate of Palestinian street attacks, police said.
Police described the alleged attacker as a "terrorist", but gave no more details on his identity. A police spokeswoman said he attacked an Israeli trooper who tried to search him and whose protective vest prevented the knife from causing injury.
