Jerusalem - Israeli police shot dead a Palestinian wielding a knife and a gun after he attacked four Israelis, killing one of them, in the Old City of Jerusalem on Saturday, rescue services and police said.

The attack comes amid high tensions after clashes recently between police and Palestinians at the city's flashpoint al-Aqsa mosque compound and the murder in the West Bank of a Jewish settler couple in front of their young children.

Among the three wounded were a two-year-old child, a woman said to be in serious condition and a third person, whose condition was described as grave.

Police did not immediately explain the circumstances of the attack.
