Terrorists Kill 2 Tourists, Injure 5

Download PDF for this date

A terrorist bomb thrown into a bus in Nablus this evening killed two tourists and wounded five others, several of them seriously. The injured were flown to hospitals by helicopter as Israeli security forces sealed the area and began a search for the perpetrators. The tourists, on a Holy Land pilgrimage sponsored by the West German Lutheran Church, were returning from Galilee to East Jerusalem when their bus was attacked in the center of Nablus. It had stopped briefly in the main square of the West Bank town. The bus reportedly was owned by an Arab tour agency.
