Kerry says Jerusalem attack an atrocity 'making matters worse'

WASHINGTON -- US Secretary of State John Kerry has condemned the second vehicular terrorist attack in less than two weeks in Jerusalem, warning that such "atrocities" only serve to exacerbate tensions on the ground.
"I condemn today’s terrorist act of somebody driving in another car into innocent people standing on the roadside," Kerry said, meeting with Jordanian foreign minister Nasser Judeh in Paris.
"That is not just a terrorist act," he continued, "but it only makes matters worse. It only raises tensions."
