Netanya explosion kills one, cause uncertain


An explosion near a coffee shop in the Israeli coastal city of Netanya killed at least one person and injured several others.

The cause of the explosion, which occurred shortly after midnight early Friday morning, remains uncertain. Police are investigating.

The explosion caused part of a building to collapse, reportedly leaving some people trapped.

The Israeli website Ynet reports that the coffee shop where the explosion occurred was host to illegal activities.

Netanya has been the site of Palestinian terrorist attacks in the past, but it has also been an epicenter for violence between rival Israeli organized crime families, which have sometimes used bombings to settle scores.
