Ban condemns Jerusalem attack

Condemning the "bulldozer attack" that killed at least four people in Jerusalem on Wednesday, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has expressed deep concern over continuing violence in the region.

The Secretary-General, currently on a three-nation Asian tour, offered his condolences to the families of those killed and "wishes those injured a speedy recovery", in a statement.

At least four people were killed and 45 others injured when a Palestinian man rammed his bulldozer into two public buses and several cars on a busy street, leaving a trail of destruction, before being shot dead by Israeli police.

Meanwhile, in a separate statement, the UN top officer also expressed concern over Israel's firing of rockets at the Palestinian village of Burin in the West Bank.

"He (Ban) calls on Israel to impose law and order and ensure protection of the Palestinian population under occupation," the statement said.
