At least four people were injured tonight, two of them seriously, when a hand grenade was thrown at a demonstration by the Peace Now movement opposite the Prime Minister’s office, it was reported by Israel Television. Two policemen were among the injured. According to some reports, a demonstrator was also killed, but this could not be immediately confirmed.

The incident occurred while the Cabinet was meeting to deal with the report by the commission of inquiry. A spokesman for the Peace Now movement said the explosion was in the car belonging to Dr. Galia Golan, a leader of the movement. Hundreds of Peace Now supporters rallied to call for the resignation of Defense Minister Ariel Sharon. Pro-Sharon supporters were also conducting a separate rally in the same area.
