A Palestinian man was shot dead after he allegedly stabbed an Israeli policeman at an entrance to Jerusalem's Old City on Monday, Israeli police said.

The police officer's protective vest stopped the knife and he was unharmed. The attacker was shot dead by other officers, according to Agence France Presse.

Al Arabiya's correspondent Ziad Halabi reported the incident which was the latest in a wave of knife attacks this month.
