A Palestinian has rammed his car into a group of Israeli pedestrians in Jerusalem, injuring four policewomen and another bystander, police say.

It happened on the seam of East and West Jerusalem, close to the site of a series of similar attacks last year.

Police say the driver, from East Jerusalem, tried to stab people before he was shot and wounded by officers.

The incident came shortly after Palestinian officials voted to halt security co-operation with Israel.

Those injured in the attack are being treated in hospital. None of them are said to be seriously wounded.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri called the incident a “terror attack”. It took place as the streets were busy with people celebrating the Jewish holiday of Purim.
