A radical right-wing Jewish group claimed responsibility for an explosion which injured 29 Palestinian children in a school in the northern West Bank. The group, calling itself “Revenge of the Babies,” said in a message sent to the beeper of one of the radio’s journalists that the blast was “to avenge the Jewish children killed by the Palestinians.” The blast occurred in a school in the village of Al-Jarba, 10 kilometres (six miles) south of Jenin.
