JERUSALEM – Israeli border police have shot dead a Palestinian man and wounded two others at the entrance to Jerusalem.

Border police spokesman Shai Hakimi says 40-year-old Akram Badr was traveling in a car that burst through a checkpoint at high speed early Monday and tried to run over officers who ordered him to stop.

Palestinian police said the car had entered a wrong lane and was backing up to enter the right one when Israeli border police mistakenly thought it was trying to hit them and opened fire.

Hakimi said police didn´t know whether the Palestinians were armed because the car drove off, eluding security forces. (© 2012 The Associated Press 07/30/12)
