JERUSALEM (AP) - Israeli police have identified the people killed in a Jerusalem synagogue attack as three American citizens and a Briton.

Police said the victims were all immigrants to Israel and held dual citizenship.

In Tuesday's attack, a pair of Palestinian attackers burst into a synagogue during morning prayers with meat cleavers and a gun, killing four people before they were shot dead by police.

The attack occurred in Jerusalem's Har Nof neighborhood, an ultra-Orthodox area with a large number of immigrants from Western countries.
