Israel: Five Dead After Gunfight In Bank

A gunman has shot dead four people in a bank in Israel after he was refused an overdraft and cash from an automatic teller machine.

The man stormed into the Bank Hapoalim branch in the southern city of Be'er Sheva, killing four people in a gunfight and taking a hostage before killing himself.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the shootings happened inside the bank, which was cordoned off with a large number of police.
