A fire ripped through a bus in Jerusalem on Monday, Israeli police said, with medics reporting an explosion and at least 15 people wounded.

Police initially said there was “an attack” without providing further details before later saying all causes were being investigated.

The bus appeared to have been empty at the time, the police said, with the wounded apparently on another bus situated next to it.

Rescue service Magen David Adom reported the explosion and at least 15 wounded, including two seriously.

An AFP journalist at the scene said one bus was completely burnt while another was partially burned, with a large contingent of firefighters battling to extinguish the blaze.
