JERUSALEM A Palestinian man stabbed and wounded an Israeli teenager in Jerusalem on Sunday, just hours after another knife-wielding attacker killed an off-duty Israeli soldier and a rabbi nearby in the walled Old City, police said.

Officers shot dead both attackers, a police spokesman said, and Israel's government announced it was barring Palestinians from entering the ancient district for two days, apart from people who lived there.
