Car plows into Jerusalem bus stop, kills 2 people


A car that plowed into a bus stop on the outskirts of Jerusalem on Friday killed two people, including a six-year-old boy.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu described the episode as terrorism and ordered the arrest of people close to the suspect, who was killed at the crime scene.

The episode takes place in a period of worsening tensions between Israel and Palestine, after the murder of seven people in front of a synagogue last month, also in Jerusalem.

Ariel Ben-David, a volunteer doctor with the Hatzalah Unida ambulance service, said those affected were badly injured. Videos circulating on the internet show a blue vehicle hitting a pole in front of a bus stop in the Ramot Alon area, part of Jerusalem annexed by Israel after the 1967 war.
