Hamas spokesperson: 'Every day Jerusalem is boiling'

At least four Israelis have been killed and eight injured when two men with a pistol, knives and axes attacked a West Jerusalem synagogue, police say.

The attackers - Palestinians from East Jerusalem - were shot dead, police say.

On Monday a Palestinian bus driver was found hanged in a vehicle in Jerusalem - Israeli police said he had committed suicide but the driver's family said they suspected foul play.

Hamas spokesman Ghazi Hamad told BBC World that people had expected Tuesday's attack because, "every day there is a crime against a Palestinian citizen".
