Six people have been stabbed at a gay pride parade in the Israeli capital, the Israeli ambulance service has said.

Witnesses report seeing an ultra-orthodox Jewish man stab at least six people before being wrestled to the ground and restrained on Keren Hayesod Street in Jerusalem.

Paramedics from Magen David Adom emergency service attended the scene and said that two people were seriously injured, a third with moderate injuries, and others lightly wounded.

The victims were treated at the scene before being transported to three different hospitals in Jerusalem for further treatment.

The stabbing was a repeat of the violence at the first Jerusalem gay pride parade, where four men were stabbed over their sexual orientation in 2005.
