Jerusalem Mayor and Bodyguard Subdue Terrorist

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and his bodyguard subdued a terrorist armed with a knife on a street near City Hall on Sunday. Arriving on the scene just after a man had been stabbed, the bodyguard drew his sidearm and held it on the terrorist while the mayor wrestled the assailant to the ground. The dramatic scene was captured on surveillance cameras. The 55-year old mayor served as an officer in the Israeli army paratrooper brigade.
