Bomb Destroys Tel Aviv Apartments

SIGN UP FOR THE JTA DAILY BRIEFING

A pipe bomb destroyed two apartments in a Tel Aviv slum Sunday morning but caused no casualties.

The explosion occurred in a three-story residential building in the Kiryat Shapira neighborhood in the southern environs of the city.

Several Arabs employed in the area were detained for questioning but police announced no arrests. The explosive device was concealed in a fuse box. The two ground-floor apartments wrecked by the blast and fire were unoccupied.

Other residents of the building were evacuated safely while firemen extinguished the blaze.
