A terrorist blew up a bus on Tel Aviv's Shaul Hamelech Street around noon Wednesday.

A total of 16 people were injured the attack, according to a spokesperson from the city's Ichilov Hospital. 

One person was severely injured, one moderately and one light to moderately. The remainder of the casualties were lightly injured or suffering shock. 

None were in a life threatening condition, though two have been taken into surgery, the hospital spokesperson said.

Police confirmed that the explosion was a terrorist attack, although said it did not appear to be a suicide bombing and thus police were searching the area for additional explosive devises.
