Guards fire on attacker at US embassy in Tel Aviv: police

Tel Aviv, Nov 20 , 2012 (AFP)

Security guards at the US embassy in Tel Aviv today fired shots at a man who attacked them with a knife and an axe, an Israeli police spokeswoman said, indicating the attacker had been apprehended.

"A suspect came to the US embassy at 11:00 am (1430 IST) with a knife and an axe and attacked a security guard," spokeswoman Luba Samri told AFP, saying the guard was injured in the leg, prompting his colleagues to open fire.

"Other security guards fired shots at him," she said.
"The attacker was not hurt," Samri said, adding that the assailant, who had been arrested, was "not an Arab."

She did not give further details on his identity but said he was from the town of Bat Yam, just south of Tel Aviv.

Police said the incident occurred at the entrance to the embassy which is located on Yarkon Street, a block from the sea front.
