Policeman shot in July 11 Jerusalem attack dies of wounds

Israeli police say a policeman shot in what is being treated as a Palestinian militant attack earlier this month has died of his injuries. The lawman, David Shriki, was one of two officers wounded by gunfire while on patrol in Jerusalem's Old City on the night of July 11. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said Shriki died early Wednesday in a Jerusalem hospital. The second policeman was less gravely injured and is recovering. Rosenfeld said police were still hunting the assailant.
