Police checking if 1 of 2 Beersheba gunmen was Eritrean national

Police say they are looking into reports that one of the two attackers at the Beersheba Central Bus Station may be an Eritrean national who was seeking asylum in Israel.

Security camera footage of the attack aired on Israeli TV seemed to show several people running from a man who is eventually shot several times by responding forces.

It may be that the man shown being shot was an Eritrean asylum-seeker, who may have been unconnected to the attack and shot by mistake.
