Tel Aviv suspect shot by police
Text size Aa Aa

An Arab Israeli citizen has been killed in a shootout with police after a week-long manhunt.

Nashat Melhem was wanted in connection with a New Year’s Day attack in Tel Aviv in which three people died and three were seriously injured.

He was traced to an abandoned building in his northern Israeli hometown of Arara.

Opinion remains divided over his potential motive for the Tel Aviv attack.
