By Jeffrey Heller JERUSALEM (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said on Wednesday his wife Jill and their grandchildren were dining on a Tel Aviv beach when a Palestinian killed an American tourist with a knife and wounded 11 other people on the seafront "not very far" away. Israeli forces have killed at least 179 Palestinians, 121 of whom Israel says were assailants. "I don't know exactly whether it was a hundred meters or a thousand meters," Biden, on a visit to Israel, told reporters about Tuesday's assault.
