Tel Aviv Blast May Be Connected to Feuding Criminals, Police Say

Jan. 10 (Bloomberg) -- An explosion in Tel Aviv today that left four people injured was probably connected to a battle between rival criminal gangs, Israeli police said.

The blast was caused by a small bomb planted on a car driving along Menachem Begin Boulevard near the main Tel Aviv train station, according to police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld. The explosion caused only light injuries, he said.

“Investigators are looking into the possibility that this was an assassination attempt against an organized crime figure,” Rosenfeld said by phone.

Not far from the site of today’s incident, a bomb exploded on a city bus on Nov. 21, injuring 20 people. Police later arrested and charged an Arab citizen of Israel with planting the device.
