A Palestinian suicide bomber has killed at least six bystanders and wounded about 50 others at a shopping mall in northern Israel. Police say many of the wounded are in critical condition.
Monday's attack was at a security checkpoint at the entrance to a mall in the coastal city of Netanya.
The militant group Islamic Jihad claimed responsibility, and released a video showing the purported bomber with an assault rifle and a grenade launcher in front of the group's black flag.
A similar Islamic Jihad bombing in July at the same mall killed five Israelis. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the attack, calling it an act of terrorism and ordering Palestinian security forces to arrest those involved.
Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has called an emergency meeting of his security cabinet to consider a response.
