Download PDF for this date

Two passengers were slightly hurt when a small explosive charge want off on a bus in Jerusalem this morning. The passengers and driver escaped more serious injuries because a larger bomb failed to explode. This second bomb, a bazooka shell attached to a time device, was defused safely by police sappers. The incident occurred on a Number 4 bus, one of the capital’s most widely used north-to-south routes. The bus had left its depot at French Hill, a new suburb in the north of the city on formerly Jordanian land, shortly before 8 a.m.
