(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) An explosion hit a bus in the heart of Tel Aviv on Wednesday, wounding at least 10 people in what officials said was a terrorist attack. A spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu issued a statement following the explosion saying that most of the victims suffered only mild wounds. Celebratory gunfire reportedly rang out in Gaza City as local radio stations reported news of the Tel Aviv explosion. The last time Israel's commercial capital was hit by a serious bomb blast was in April 2006, when a Palestinian suicide bomber killed 11 people at a sandwich stand near the city's old central bus station.
