The US government has condemned a shooting spree in Jerusalem that left a police officer and pedestrian dead near Israel's national police headquarters.
US State Department spokesman Mark Toner said in a statement: "The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms the terrorist attack that took place today in Jerusalem."
The victims were identified as Levana Malihi, a 60-year-old grandmother, and police sergeant Yosef Kirma, 29.
Six other people were injured in the attack, which was reportedly carried out by a 39-year-old Palestinian assailant.
At least 21 people have been wounded in a bus explosion in Jerusalem, Israeli police said.
Images from local television reports showed smoke billowing from a bus in Derech Hebron, southwest Jerusalem.
Police said the explosion was caused by an "explosive device" but are not sure if it was a terrorist attack.
Israel Police Foreign Press Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld tweeted:
Update to explosion on bus in Jerusalem. Police bomb disposal experts confirm explosive devise went off on bus that caused 21 injuries.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu linked the blast to six months of Palestinian street violence.
"We will settle accounts with these terrorists," Netanyahu said of those behind the attack.
"We are in a protracted struggle against terror - knife terror, shooting terror, bomb terror and also tunnel terror," he added, following Israel's discovery of an underground passage dug by Hamas militants from Gaza.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.
Two of the casualties had not yet been identified and may have been bombers.
Israeli security forces shot dead a Palestinian man today after he reportedly stabbed two police officers in Jerusalem.
The alleged attacker was shot by officers after an assault on two officers outside the walled Old City.
Israeli police described the man as a "terrorist," saying he had "stabbed and lightly wounded" his victims.
"The team responded by gunfire and neutralised the terrorist," police spokeswoman Luba Samri said.
In a continued state of heightened violence, 164 Palestinians and 28 Israelis have been killed since October.
CCTV footage of the event has raised questions over the level of force used by the police.Read the full story ›
