Two car bomb attacks - one foiled and one successful - targeted Israeli embassies on Monday, leaving at least embassy employee injured in New Dehli. The second attack, in which a car bomb was diffused by local police in Georgia, caused no injuries or damage.

The condition of the injured employee in New Delhi was not immediately available.

The attempted attack on the Israeli embassy in Georgia was foiled when an employee discovered an explosive device car across from the diplomatic mission, Israel Radio reported.

The embassy employee called police, who neutralized the explosive device. The embassy was notified of the incident, and the Foreign Ministry ordered alert levels increased at diplomatic missions across the world, according to the report.

An initial statement from the Foreign Ministry said that embassy employees had been targeted in the two countries.
