PARIS: French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius on Wednesday condemned a bomb attack on a bus in Tel Aviv that wounded 17 people as counter to attempts to end Gaza-linked violence.

"I condemn in the strongest terms the attack that has just taken place in Tel Aviv, targeting civilians at a time when everything must be done to obtain a ceasefire," Fabius said in a statement.

"It is urgent to establish a lasting ceasefire. I will speak again today with my Israeli, Egyptian and American counterparts," Fabius said.

The blast took place as US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in Israel for talks with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on how to end a deadly spike in bloodshed in and around Gaza over the past week.
