Nov. 21 (Bloomberg) -- An explosion on a bus in Tel Aviv left at least 10 people injured, Israeli Army Radio reported.

The blast occurred near the military headquarters in the Israeli commercial hub. A witness who wasn’t identified told Channel Two that it was a powerful explosion and many were hurt. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the cause of the blast wasn’t immediately clear.

The explosion comes as the conflict between Israel and Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip enters a second week, with Israeli planes carrying out airstrikes and the Gaza-based groups firing rockets. More than 130 Palestinians and five Israelis have been killed, officials say.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who visited Jerusalem and the West Bank today, and Egypt’s President Mohamed Mursi are leading international efforts to broker a cease-fire accord.
