Text size Aa Aa

A Palestinian man has reportedly been shot by security officials after breaking into the Turkish embassy in Tel Aviv and holding hostages.
 
Reports are now coming in saying that he has been captured. Earlier Israeli media said the man was injured but still armed and at large in the building.
 
Reports said two embassy staff, possibly the Turkish consul general and his wife, were held hostage by the man before managing to escape when he was shot.
 
Tel Aviv is where all countries have their embassies in Israel.
 
The man, who has been named as Nadim Injaz, is known to the Israeli authorities. He was reportedly freed from jail recently and has a history of mental problems.
 
An Israeli TV station has played a voice recording of the man in which he apparently demanded asylum in Turkey.
