WARSAW, Poland (AP) " Polish officials say that several vehicles in a convoy that included Poland's prime minister collided during a state visit to Israel.

The car carrying Prime Minister Beata Szydlo was not one of those that collided. She was unharmed.

The accident occurred late Monday as Szydlo was being transported from Tel Aviv airport to Jerusalem at the start of Polish-Israeli discussions.

Polish government spokesman Rafal Bochenek said that two Polish officials required medical attention but were not badly hurt.

One was a government security guard and the other a staff member of the prime minister's office.
