A Palestinian man drove a bulldozer into traffic in Jerusalem, overturning a bus and several cars and killing four people. Dozens of people were hurt, at least 7 critically, before a police officer shot the attacker dead. A BBC reporter on the scene saw hundreds of citizens fleeing the scene.
"We can clearly say this is a terrorist incident," said a police spokesman, although there was no immediate claim of responsibility. Police said the attacker, who was headed toward a crowded market, held an Israeli ID card and had a criminal record. Jerusalem authorities have declared a state of emergency.
