Soldiers hurt in Jerusalem attack

About a dozen soldiers have been wounded in an apparent attack in central Jerusalem, Israeli police say.

They say a man drove his car into the group at a busy intersection, before being shot and killed.

Police said the driver was a Palestinian and described the incident as a "terror attack".

The road junction is close to the boundary between the Jewish and Arab areas of Jerusalem. Two of those injured are in a serious condition.

The attacker has been identified in the Israeli press as Qassem al-Mughrabi, a 19-year-old Palestinian resident of the al-Farouk area of East Jerusalem.
