Seven die as deadly attacks hit Israeli vehicles

At least seven people have been killed in a series of attacks on vehicles in southern Israel, Israeli medics say.

The attacks began when gunmen fired at a bus that was travelling near the Egyptian border.

Officials said two other vehicles were hit - one by a rocket and one by an explosive device - and that several gunmen died in an ensuing firefight.

It is the first major attack on Israel's border with Egypt for several years.
