Initial reports showed there were at least two gunmen in the Tel Aviv shooting attacks, an Israeli police spokeswoman has said.

Meirav Lapidot said both were "neutralised", which can mean either killed or detained.

Another spokeswoman Luba Samri said there were reports of shooting in two locations close to the popular open-air Sharona market.

One of the attackers is being treated in hospital, she added.

Israel has been struggling to cope with eight months of Palestinian attacks that have killed 28 Israelis and two Americans.

About 200 Palestinians have been killed during that time, most identified as attackers by Israel.
