Baby killed and eight wounded in terror attack in Jerusalem [VIDEO]

A three-month old baby was killed in Jerusalem and eight other people wounded – one seriously – in what Israel police described as a “terrorist attack” when a speeding car drove onto a pavement crowded with pedestrians alighting from the city’s light railway.

The child killed in the attack was later named as Chaya Zissel Braun, a US citizen, whose family had been visiting the Western Wall.

Video footage posted on social media showed a car on the main road slowing slightly before crossing to the train tracks and climbing on to the station pavement, ploughing through the people standing on it.

The incident occurred on Wednesday evening at about 6pm on Road 1 – one of Jerusalem’s main arterial roads – as passengers were getting off one of the city’s light railway trains at a stop on Ammunition Hill near the national police headquarters.
