Two Bombs Safely Dismantled

Two bombs planted in the Old City were safely dismantled by police today. They were spotted by a Belgian tourist, Leon Bubek, and an Israeli identified only as Michael. Bubek, 72, saw a suspicious looking object near the New Gate. The other bomb was near the Nablus Gate on the road leading to western Jerusalem. Police sappers de-fused both before they exploded. An explosive device found near the Lions Gate of the Old City several days ago was also safely dismantled.
