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.
