Tel Aviv, June 24 — A Sudanese migrant worker stabbed and wounded six people here in Israel, police said.

The injured include three Israeli citizens and three foreign workers, police told Xinhua.

All the injured, including a 67-year-old man with moderate wounds, were sent to hospital Sunday.

Police believe that the background to the incident was a fight between two Sudanese migrants. Witnesses tried to break off the fight between the two and were stabbed as well.

Police have apprehended the suspect.

There are approximately 50,000 African migrants, mainly from Eritrea and South Sudan, staying in Israel.
