An armed man threatening to commit suicide apparently breached security at the British Embassy in Tel Aviv and was loose on the grounds inside, Israeli police said Thursday. Embassy spokeswoman Karen Kauffman said police had been invited into the embassy compound and were seeking to deal with the situation. There were no reports of any shots fired. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the man was armed with a pistol and police were on the scene.
