"We came to Tel Aviv from Beersheba to escape the security situation," an eye witness told Ynet. "We heard shots and saw the security guards take down a person who shot them."

Another witness said he saw a man leaving his car with an axe and approaching the security guards.

"They must have opened fire, then they caught him and put him in the police car."

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is expected to fly to Israel on Tuesday and will meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday, an Israeli source said, as diplomacy over the Gaza conflict gathers speed.

 

"Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will arrive this evening and meet with Netanyahu tomorrow," the source said.
