JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli police say an explosion has gone off in a car in Tel Aviv but there is a "strong possibility" it is a criminal act.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said Thursday he believed the explosion near a bus was criminally motivated, though he could not definitively rule out that it was political violence.

Rescue services spokesman Zaki Heller says preliminary reports from the scene indicated seven to 10 people were wounded in the explosion.
