There has been an explosion by a car in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv.

Reports say at least four people were injured in the blast, on Menachem Begin Street, a major thoroughfare.

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 organised crime gang.

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