The Arab resident of east Jerusalem who carried out the second of two back-to-back bulldozer attacks in the city was buried early Wednesday in his village, police said. Ghassan Abu-Tier, 22, rammed his construction vehicle into a city bus and several cars on Jerusalem's central King David Street on July 22 injuring fifteen people, before being shot dead by a civilian passerby. The pre-dawn burial in the village of Umm Tuba, which was attended by several family members, passed without incident, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. Police had held the body of the attacker until now.
