U.N. LEADER VISITS JERUSALEM, URGES CALM

-

In a surprise visit to Jerusalem on Tuesday, United Nations Secretary- General Ban Ki Moon called for calm, saying “no society should live in fear,” in the latest attempt to stem escalating violence in the region.

Later, he was scheduled to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, Palestinia­n President Abbas and other senior officials in a bid to help defuse tensions.

At least four incidents took place in the region Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. Among them, a Palestinia­n rammed his car into a group of Israelis at a bus stop in the West Bank, wounding a solider and civilian. The attacker was shot and killed, the Israeli military said.
