A woman detonated a suicide vest, killing herself during the raid. After a Syrian passport was found at the site of one of the attacks, heated debates erupted in Europe and the U.S. about how to handle the massive influx of refugees from war-torn countries, including Syria.

Violence erupted again in Tel Aviv and the West Bank, where five people were killed on Thursday in a resurgence of violence after days of relative calm. In Manila, student protesters clashed with police ahead of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit.
