Bomb Blast Near Israeli Defense Ministry Injures 4

TEHRAN (FNA)- At least 4 people were injured in a car blast near the Israeli defense ministry in Menachem Begin Street, a major thoroughfare, on Thursday.



Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said there was a strong possibility the blast was a criminal incident and a "settling of scores" but did not rule out political violence.

Israeli radio said the car belonged to the suspected head of an organized crime gang.

The black Mazda car burst into flames after being targeted by a motorcyclist nearby, Haaretz newspaper reported.

An empty bus nearby was also damaged in the explosion.
