Embassy gunman in custody

    A Palestinian gunman who broke into the Turkish embassy in Tel Aviv and took two hostages is in custody this morning.

    Nadim Injaz was said to be in good condition, despite reports that he had been shot by security staff as he entered the building and siezed two hostages.

    He gave victory signs to photographers as he was escorted to an ambulance last night.

    Because the building is considered Turkish territory, he may not face punishment in Israel. But Israeli police are holding him under suspicion of illegally residing in the country.

    Injaz stormed the embassy on Hayarkon Street and made threats against Jews. Police said Injaz had first removed all of his clothes.

    A lawyer told Israel Radio that Injaz was seeking asylum in Europe and that he had demanded protection from "the murdering Jews".

    The lawyer also said Injaz had threatened to burn the embassy down if he was not granted asylum.
