A court in Tel Aviv says a Palestinian arrested after a hostage taking incident at the Turkish Embassy in Israel will remain in custody.

Meanwhile, Turkey's Foreign Minister has demanded Israel boost security at its embassy in Tel Aviv.

A court in Tel Aviv on Wednesday approved holding Nadim Injaz in jail for a week to allow police to investigate. Turkish officials at the embassy allowed Israeli police and medics to remove the attacker after a seven-hour standoff on Tuesday.

The suspect, armed with a knife and a container of gasoline, tried to take hostages and demanded political asylum. The Lawyer for Injaz says his client is suspected of working for Israeli intelligence in the past.

He says this is why Injaz was seeking political asylum. Police say Injaz carried out a similar attack on the British Embassy in 2006, also to demand asylum.
