Israel: Suspected 'attack' on bus with digger in Jerusalem

A construction vehicle has been driven into a bus in west Jerusalem killing a passer-by, in what Israeli police are calling an "attack" which may have been "politically motivated".

The driver of the digger, identified by police as a Palestinian from east Jerusalem, was shot by police and died at the wheel of the vehicle.

Alongside the one Israeli passer-by who died, several more were injured when the digger hit the bus.

Earlier, Palestinian health officials said Israel carried out an air strike on a refugee camp inside Gaza City just minutes after a planned ceasefire began.

James Reynolds reports from Jerusalem.
