A suspected Palestinian motorist has rammed his car into five people near a Jerusalem police station, injuring five, before he was shot and wounded by a security guard, Israeli police said.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri described today's assault as a "terror attack".

She says four of those injured in the attack were police officers.

Ms Samri said that according to initial reports, the motorist is apparently a Palestinian from east Jerusalem.

The attack took place near a police station in east Jerusalem, and the injured were taken to the hospital.

Ms Samri says the motorist got out of his car holding a knife, and a security guard shot and seriously wounded him.
