Israel deployed police in force in Jerusalem today, for weekly Muslim prayers and restricted access to a flashpoint mosque, after a deadly attack by a Palestinian sent tensions soaring.

Clashes broke out for a second night after the Palestinian ploughed his car into a crowd of pedestrians on Wednesday, killing a baby and injuring six other people before he was shot dead by police.

The security presence was boosted across east Jerusalem and its Old City after the confrontations between security forces and stone-throwing Palestinians.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned any further attacks would be met with "the harshest response".

Washington confirmed that the baby girl who was killed was a US citizen.
