Visiting the scene of one of the Jerusalem explosions, Israel Police Commissioner Kobi Shabtai calls on the public to be alert for suspicious packages.

He says officers are scanning the city for other devices.

Shabtai also says there may have been two attackers.

“This is a framework of attack that we haven’t seen for many years,” he says.

Two explosions at two bus stops near entrances to Jerusalem morning left one person dead and at least another 18 people hurt, police and medics said.

Police described the explosions as a terror bombing attack.
