Suicide blast hits Jerusalem bus

At least 17 people have been killed by a suicide bomber on a bus in central Jerusalem, Israeli police have said. Dozens of people were injured in the blast, which happened during rush-hour on one of the city’s main thoroughfares. About an hour after the explosion, an Israeli helicopter gunship fired missiles at a car in Gaza City, killing at least six people, Palestinian medical sources said. The Palestinian militant group Hamas said it carried out the Jerusalem bombing. The group had vowed to avenge an Israeli missile strike on a car carrying its political leader, Abdel-Aziz al-Rantissi, in Gaza on Tuesday. US President George W Bush condemned the Jerusalem bombing “in the strongest possible terms,” the White House said. Palestinian hospital sources said a senior member of Hamas, Tito Massoud, and another Hamas member were killed in the Gaza missile strike, as well as four passers-by. Full Story
