Ultra-Orthodox man stabbed and wounded in Jerusalem

A knife-wielding assailant, apparently an Arab, stabbed and wounded an ultra-Orthodox Jewish man on Sunday in Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem, police said.

The attack took place near the Old City's Damascus Gate and "the assailant was apparently an Arab man" a police spokesman said, adding that an investigation was under way.

The victim was slightly wounded, he said, but no other details were immediately available.
