JERUSALEM (AP) _ An explosion under a moving passenger train near Tel Aviv on Sunday moderately injured one Israeli, train and rescue officials said.

The cause of the blast on the tracks near the town of Yavneh was not immediately clear but police did not rule out a terror attack.

The blast damaged the engine car of the train and injured the engineer inside, train officials told Israeli television. The engineer was trapped in the car and was apparently injured in the stomach, rescue officials said.

The train was not derailed by the blast, the train officials said.

In a bombing by Palestinian militants against a train on June 30, a car was damaged but no one was seriously injured.

A double suicide bombing in Tel Aviv last week killed three bystanders.
