Zipora Cohen, 15, died yesterday, raising to seven the death toll in the Nov. 14 terrorist bombing on Jaffa Road in downtown Jerusalem. The girl, who succumbed to injuries she sustained when a booby-trapped handcart exploded in the middle of rush hour crowds, was buried yesterday next to two of her friends also killed in the blast. Her sister Lea, 16, is still hospitalized for injuries. All of the victims were teenagers.
