JERUSALEM, (AP) – Shots were fired Tuesday at the Turkish Embassy in Tel Aviv, wounding one person, Israeli police said.

Police would not confirm reports that a man entered the embassy and made demands. Anonymous Israeli officials said the attacker was a Palestinian who tried to seek asylum at the British Embassy four years ago and was turned away.

Israel Radio reported from the scene that rescue workers with stretchers tried to enter the seaside embassy compound but left without bringing out any wounded.

The radio report said Turkish officials were not allowing Israeli police or rescue workers to enter the embassy.
