Israeli police shoot man in east Jerusalem

Israeli police say they have shot a man whose car slammed into a crowded train stop in east Jerusalem, in what they suspect was an intentional attack.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri says Wednesday's incident occurred near the national police headquarters. She says that nine people were wounded, some seriously.

There were no details on the driver's condition.

Samri says initial signs indicate the incident was an intentional attack by a Palestinian assailant.

East Jerusalem has experienced months of unrest since a Palestinian teenager was kidnapped and burned to death by Jewish extremists in early July.
