A security guard at the US Embassy in Tel Aviv sustained light wounds to his leg on Tuesday after being assaulted with a knife and an axe.
Security guards fired warning shots and then arrested the assailant. The circumstances of the incident are being investigated. Police said the suspect is a 41-year-old man from central Israel.
