Palestinian PM safe in Gaza after explosion near convoy: live TV

An explosion occurred on a Gaza road shortly after a convoy carrying Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah passed by on Tuesday, a border official said, but live television showed he was unhurt and attending a scheduled event.

The cause of the blast was not immediately known. Hamadallah, who is based in the Israeli-occupied West Bank, traveled to Gaza for the inauguration of a waste treatment plant.
