TEL AVIV, Israel (CNN) -- A suicide bomber set off a blast on a crowded city bus in downtown Tel Aviv on Thursday, killing at least five people, according to police.

It was the second terror attack in Israel in two days, after six weeks without any bombings.

"A bus just blew up in front of my eyes," said CNN sound engineer Michael Harris, who was near the scene. He described the blast as "enormous."

Ambulance services said at least 60 people had been wounded. At least five of them were reported to be in serious condition. The bomber was killed, police said.

The Tel Aviv police chief told Israeli television that the bus driver is believed to have tried to block the bomber as he boarded the bus. That, said the police chief, probably lessened the number of casualties.

The explosion went off just after 1 p.m. local time (6 a.m. ET) on Allenby Street in a crowded shopping district.

Dozens of emergency workers rushed to the scene. Television pictures showed rescuers aiding victims who sat on the shady, tree-lined sidewalks.

Police brought in bomb-sniffing dogs and canvassed the area, looking for other explosives. None were found.
